I can see where people think that, but I dont think thats what happened. Serra has good wrestling and good bjj skills, and great ground defense skills. After GSP takes someone to the ground its usually over by submission pretty quickly. Serra held his own. Im not taking anything away from Serra, because he lasted a decent amount of time against the barrage. He's a tough little New Yorker who can take damage (then cries about it later, ugh).

Anyways. GSP is such a great fighter, very very humble. SO I doubt he prolonged it on purpose. But who knows except for him. If he did, he doesnt loose respect in my eyes, Serra deserved it haha.

here is the only link to the fight i could find.

Danzig did really great in this match. he is off to a great start in the UFC. looking forward seeing him climb up the ladder. :D

GSP definitely vindicated in this fight. as always he was a class act after the fight, inviting Matt Serra out for drinks and asking Canadian fans not to boo him. he even thanked Matt Serra for accepting this fight in Canada., and said if he wants to make it best 2 out of 3, he would agree to a rematch in Serra's hometown of New York. "I am a man of my word, I will do it".

oh... and Kalib "The Running Man" Starnes will most likely never be seen in the UFC again after that performance.

Nope. Not making excuses at all actually. Which surprised me. He gave a lot of respect to GSP.

I didnt see the post post fight interview, so I dont know. But I remember him from all the shows and its what he did whenever he didnt get his way.

I just dont like him! Just like I dont like Chuck Liddell haha! Two different reasons though.

Yeah, Bocek looked pretty banged up after Mac got through with him. He looks like Sloth from the Goonies. Great pics!

I don't think GSP prolonged the fight - he knows a guy like Serra can pull submissions from the bottom if he's not careful. Serra's got a thick neck and really stout, short arms - not easy to choke or arm bar. He just wasn't taking chances. Serra tried to get into a better position lots of times, but was met with a barrage every time. GSP knew exactly how to fight him. He was working Serra's body hard, first with punches, then those brutal knees. I wouldn't take anything away from Serra tho. He's a tough guy but he was simply out classed. GSP's looking pretty dominant in that weight class right now.

I love how Starnes got angry after that haha! Flipping him the bird was probably the funniest thing I ever saw in mma.

i don't know how danzig does it, but how he comes outta fights barely untouched still makes me confused .... he got a little more beat up this fight than others i've seen, but damn he really knows how to own the octagon

the fight between gsp and serra almost felt like a 3-3 tied stanley cup game lol i loved gsp's take downs on serra, especially the one right before the end of the 1st round, that one made me smile :) and when serra was shaking his head right after the start of the 2nd round, i guess he saw too many stars :)

"matt serra landing a head kick" ...... bullshit florian, i think you need glasses :)

i'm not too happy how the americans pronounced montreal at the end though lol "mon-tre-a" ...... COME ON ..... "mon-re-al" how hard is that?

oh man LOL. those two gif's above really tell the whole story of the fight. well, i just read kalib starnes has been officially released from his contract. he will no longer be fighting for the UFC. he said after the paper work gets signed, he will discuss his actions in this bout. can't imagine how he is gonna explain this behaviour.

here is a fight that wasn't televised, but still pretty good. Maia really showcases his jui jitsu skills in this one. and they way it ends...
