UFC 83 betting Odds & Information

The Georges St. Pierre/Matt Serra rematch is set for April 19, 2008 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It has been just over a year (April 7, 2007) since the first fight, which resulted in Serra being crowned the UFC Welterweight Champion.

Serra shocked the world with his TKO of St. Pierre just three minutes and 25 seconds into the first round. The victory is widely considered to be the biggest upset in UFC history.

Matt Serra originally applied to be on the Ultimate Fighter (TUF) show in season four (the come back). he beat out guys in his weight class giving him a title fight. Serra was definitely the underdog in that fight, everyone was 100% sure that St.Pierre was going to win that fight by knock out or submission. But infact in the first round Serra rocked St.Pierre finishing him by TKO, and becoming the NEW Welter Weight championship.

Matt Serra has not fought since. He was scheduled to defend his title at UFC 79 against Matt Hughes, but was forced to pull out of the fight with a herniated disc in his lower back.

St. Pierre, on the other hand, won a unanimous decision over Josh Koscheck and then fought and won the UFC Interim Welterweight Championship by submitting Matt Hughes via arm bar.

Georges “Rush” St. Pierre is the current Interim UFC Welterweight Champion. He has a professional MMA record of 15-2 and is widely considered to be one of the top pound-for-pound MMA fighters

in the world, along with Quinton Jackson, Fedor Emelianenko, and Anderson Silva.

UFC 83 Results

The Ultimate Fighting Championship is a test of pure gladiator fighting skills. The fight occurs inside an octagon that is 32 feet across. The fighters are contained by a 5 foot link fence. Most participants have martial arts training in some discipline, however, this is by no means a requirement. It has a no holds barred philosophy although some rules have been added recently.

Although there can be a lot of blood, fights usually end with joint locks or choke holds and it is generally the more skilled opponent that wins. Size is an advantage, but skill in ending the fights with a finishing move (choke out, joint locks, etc.) are the best.
