    Bigger than Matt Serra? What do you say?

    Congrats to T.J. Dillashaw!

    I voted yes because I think it was just as big of an upset as Matt Serra's, especially when you take into consideration the way in which TJ won.

    No, I picked Barao to win. But TJ was a legit contender.

    I think it's bigger at the time gsp still had a few unanswered questions about him.

    Fuck no. Barao was a product of the Dana White hype machine

    Serra's was a fluke KO punch whereas Dillashaw dominated the entire fight.

    Did Serra dominate GSP or did he get lucky?

    Dillashaw destroyed Barao everywhere.

    I don't know if it's the biggest upset, but I think he showed up in a way that no one could have expected.

    He literally performed perfectly. He mad Barao look like he doesn't belong in the UFC. It was seriously incredible.

    I think it's better than Serra/GSP because it was a 20 min out classing then a finish.

    Surprising as fuck yes, but Serra/GSP was once in a lifetime upset kind of thing.

    I picked yes before thinking about Matt Serra...so although my poll result says yes...the real answer is no.


    fucking awesome either way.

    In the level of domination, yes. 40-35 and then closes the show.

    Accidentally said yes, but still no. Nobody in the world would have ranked Serra in the top 5 at 170, TJ was outmatched on paper but still ranked #4.

    Now people are saying Barao was all hype, despite two wins over Faber, Jorgensen (when it mattered), McDonald, Wineland, Pickett, etc...
