    Serra over GSP or Bethe over Ronda?

    I'd say Bethe because Shedor is way more hyped and way more dominant in her division than Georges ever was.

    What say you?

    Most women don't have a punchers chance (1 stray punch) like Serra did, so DEFINITELY Betche.

    Definitely Bethe. GSP didn't have the aura of invincibility around him when he lost to Serra.

    Rousey already has that aura and she's undefeated, which GSP wasn't.

    Plus the fact that the men's Welterweight division always has a good possibility of a one-punch knockout, the women's bantamweight division doesn't. So it will need to be an overall phenomenal performance from Bethe to do it. So that would be a much bigger scale than the Serra knockout IMO.

    GSP was like -1300 over Serra and Ronda is like -1400 over Bethe. Therefore the answer is Bethe.

    So, biggest MMA upset of all time if Betche wins?

    Also, look at the betting odss for both fights...GSP was a -1100 and Ronda is a -1800 on some sites.

    Not a huge gsp fan but he was way more dominant then piggy Ronda the level of competition doesn't even compare Ronda is good but it's easy when you fight girls with barley any talent except maybe tate zigano and idk. But gsp worst opponent is better than Rondas best.

    Bethe because Serra had a puncher's chance and good jiu jitsu.
