    Interesting to note that while 5 ounces is advertising The Bell Centre in Montreal for UFC 83, that the date in stadium in question shows no sign of that show being scheduled to take place. Kinda makes you want to ask WTF

    The one event for which I would have taken a weekend off and flown to Montreal, and they had to schedule it on the first night of Passover…

    Darren, the UFC has announced they’ll be holding a press conference next week in Canada to make a major announcement. I’m really not sure what you’re trying to get at but I think everyone knows what that announcement is going to be.

    i hope GSP finally gives Serra the beating he’s been waiting for.

    Rich Clementi’s going to have no problem what-so-ever sub’ing Stout.

    Quarry’s gonna have a few problems because Starnes can definatley take a punch. . . i can’t predict whether Quarry gets the KO or whether Starnes imposes his will. . .

    i can only pray that Doerkson sub’s MacDonald.
    i’m kinda a Doerkson fan. . . not really. . . i just think he’s a good fighter. . . and i hate me some Jason MacDonald. . . i can’t stand him. . . i don’t know why.

    Mr Caplan,

    Basically what I’m trying to say is that The Bell Centre doesn’t show any shows (UFC,Celine Dion etc) for the night in question, which is kinda unfortunate as if such a show was to take place in Canada, as has been rumoured since at least December, I’m sure that the UFC would have no problem selling out.

    I seen it advertised on 5 ounces and was looking to plan a trip to Montreal expressly for that weekend to see GSP and Serra.

    What a perfect fight @ the perfect venue. Man, GSP kicking the shiznits outta Serra in front of all of the other “Frenchy’s” as Serra calls them will be just embarassing for Serra. Serra got lucky, had a lucky fight & now thinks that he’s on top of he world. We won’t be seeing Serra much more after UFC 83.

  • BigBad Brad says:

    m.serra fan….Well u are entitled to your opinion, but looking @ overall skill level, GSP will make a French fry outta Serra. GSP had a bad night the fight he lost his belt to Serra, but props to Serra for capitalizing on GSP’s mistake. That won’t happen again, as we all know…”We learn from our mistakes” as the cliche’ statement goes. GSP learned his & he now knows what’s left to do.

  • Rich says:

    GSP is the best welterweight in the world.

    and he has been ever since he lost to matt hughes.

    bottom line.

    Serra’s too small to handle GSP and should be fighting at LW anyway.

    he doesn’t even have these “heavy hands” that all these people keep talking about.

    the way the last fight turned out was obviously a mistake.

    when GSP lost to Hughes… he became such a better fighter, that it’s not even funny.

    But then he lost to Matt Serra, and now, he’s indistructable… i’m sure of it.

    GSP is the best example of someone who learns from their losses i’ve ever seen.

  • screwface says:

    rich your last statement said it best, gsp is one of my favorite fighters for that exact reason. he never makes the same mistake twice, and his losses are the best things that ever happened to him. you cant learn that in the gym, only from experience. and thats why the best fighters always have losses on their records, you cant get too comfortable in victory. you always have to better yourself. and gsp always comes back twice as strong as his last. the simple fact of his last fight with serra is, he slept on him. and he wont make that mistake again. 1 day im sure gsp will be hall of fame. and he when looks back over his incredible career, his losses will be his true sensei. serra is a good fighter, but his 15 mins is almost up. gsp ftw!

    danzig didnt belong on tuf, he shouldve been brought into the ufc a long time ago without the hazing ritual known as tuf. it was unfair to the other fighters on that season and the fans of the show. any hardcore mma fan knew from day1 who he was and that he would easily walk through that stable of amatuers. if hes going to be truly tested in the ufc then he needs a bigger name opponent. danzig ftw.

  • GSP is UFC says:

    Who the hell would be a Serra fan? A shitbag that’s who. Serra might as well tap when they touch gloves cuz it’s gonna be an ass pounding otherwise. Logic tells me that GSP is gonna take a dump alllll over Serra, a big, heavy, haymaker of a dump. And who knows, maybe Serra will fight back, but that’s only because he enjoys the scent of French whoop ass planted all over his pansyness. Ohhhh Canadaaaa.

  • shawn says:

    It is confirmed, UFC will be in Montreal tomorrow, Monday to make the official announcement of UFC 83. They will be at the Bell Centre to make the announcment.
    BTW, GSP will make Serra look like the chump he is. St. Pierre is the welterweight equivalent of Anderson Silva, a dominent champion who will get back his belt and hold it for quite a while. No one in the 170lb class comes close to matching his skill level.
    I will be there to witness the ass kicking.

    SEAMUS , GSP FAN ,
    CODO’S DAYNA FOR THE PRESS CONFRENCE AND THE ULTIMATE FIGHT CARD THAT YOUR BRING TO CANADA I CAN’T WAIT . GSP IS WITHOUT ANY DOUBT THE BEST ATHELETE THAT HAS EVER COME OUT OF CANADA IN ANY SPORT NO ONE COMPARES IN HIS WEIGHT CLASS . I’M FROM NFLD BUT RESIDE IN RED DEER AB , AND I’VE BEEN A FAN TO UFC SINCE THE START , I DON’T MISS A PPV EVENT , BUT IN THE SPRING I PLAN TO DRIVE TO MONTREAL FOR THIS ONE . I’D LOVE TO SEE GSP KICK SERRA’S ASS ALL OVER THE OCTAGON , IF GSP KO THAT STUMPY FOOT STOMPING MOUTH PIECE IT WOULD BE JUST TO COOL TO PUT WORDS TO . I WOULD BE ALMOST AS HAPPY TO SEE A SUBMISSION BUT NO MATTER WHAT WAY YOU LOOK AT IT , AT THE END OF THE EVENT THERE’S GOING TO BE A NEW 2 X CANADIAN WELTER WIGHT CHAMPION , SERRA IS CRAZY IF HE THINKS HE’S GOING TO GET LUCKY AGAIN , HE WON THE BELT APRIL , 2007 AND HAS’NT DEFENDED YET , IT WILL BE PRETTY MUCH A YEAR TO DATE THAT HE’LL LOOSE IT AS FAST AS HEY WON WITHOUT A TITLE DEFENSE TO HIS CREDIT , HA HA . I CAN’T WAIT AS BIG JOHN McCARTHEY SAYS ” LETS GET IT , COME ON “

  • m.serra fan says:

    I was surprised to see only 1 comment on my rant about gsp losing to matt serra.I was hoping to upset some people. Of course George will crush Serra.I dont think it will be anything close to a good fight. George is definitly not a pussy. he is the best 170 fighter right now. I would like to see Jon Fitch vs G.S.P that would be worth the 44.95.

    Seamus, as everyone else would also love to hear Big John say “Let’s get it on”, he has retired, and shall never say it in the octagon again (let’s hope for a comeback)

    GSP FTW

    I’m surprised no one has said anything about rich franklin

    I’m guessing he is going to beat lutter (unfortunatley even if he does stomp lutter and anyone else, he is still going to need to fight anderson silva… bad news)

    RF FTW

  • chris says:

    ST.PIERRE WILL KILL SERRA, he will either knock his ass out or submit him, hes unstoppable, kalib starnes sucks, he will lose. rich clementi will submit stout in under 2 minutes although i really like stout. rich franklin should keep it standing and knock lutter’s ass out. i think doerksen will win over mcdonald via unanimous decision. herman will problabluy get submitted by meia. danzig should easily win over bocek. Bisping is a very good figher, he will destroy mccarthy and make a hard run to the middleweight title eventually. goulet will win easily.

    beside serra vs gsp 2 i don’t really want to see the rest of the card. i like quarry, bisping, & franklin. but not enough to pay 40 bucks on ppv. watching it on internet the next day, much cheaper.

    also winner’s taking on fitch that’ll be crazy to see. gsp vs fitch my opinion, serra’s the man but i don’t think he has the number.
