seriously though, you do remember GSP saying he wouldn't have fought Serra the first time if he were Matt Hughes? he said that because he was supposedly injured going into the fight.
it was his excuse as to why Serra beat him. he was basically saying Serra was nothing and even though he (GSP) was injured he could beat him. LOL
he also said the only reason he lost to Matt Hughes was because he was in awe of him, he was his idol and he was already beat before they fought.
I don't have a problem with either of those comments to be honest...
Saying he wouldnt have taken the fight if it was Matt is really just a compliment to Matt. I don't see that as being a bad thing.
to me Sarah IS nothing.... a game show winner with no right at a title shot... I don't remember GSP being injured... I belive he was referring more to his mental state due to some personal issues and the impact it had on his training. A tough spot to be in really... back out of a fight and people trash you... fight when you don't think you should and lose... people talk trash.... a no win in my book.
I guess the comment about being in awe of Matt is why I like GSP. He's just honest. He tapped way too early, he knew that... and he was honest about it. Hell if your idol locks up an armbar on you in your head you're probably thinking it's broke already. Imagine catching a fastball from Randy Johnson. Even if he threw it at half speed in your head it was a million miles an hour just because of what you KNOW he's capable of. I think that's what GSP was thinking.
