    On the most recent MMA Hour, a question similar to the following was discussed: If Dennis Siver beats Conor McGregor, would the upset be as big as Matt Serra defeating GSP?

    So, what do you think? How big of an upset would it be? Would it rank as high as the Serra/GSP upset? Or would it be nowhere close to that upset?

    No, cause GSP was only ever finished once before, against the most dominant
    champion in the sport at 170.

    Conor's been finished in 30 seconds. By some dude

    Serra's face afterwards tells the story.

    Bigger, because GSP is not GOAT

    It could be mathmatically that bad if the odds get as lopsided but it would never be that much of a shock.
