Saturday
night in Montreal, Georges St. Pierre carries the weight of Canada on his
shoulders into his challenge for Matt Serra’s UFC welterweight championship. He
seems focused and dialed in to the challenge. At the same time, Serra is comfortable
in his role as the underdog – despite the gold around his waste –
and has been relaxed and confident as the clock winds down.

In
middleweight action at UFC 83, Rich Franklin and Travis Lutter are both
fighting for their respective UFC careers. Each is coming off of a loss to
middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Another loss for either would be a
severely damaging blow.

 

Both have
had a difficult time with weight cuts in the past, but with the spotlight squarely
on Serra and St. Pierre, Franklin and Lutter easily made weight this time
around and appear less stressed than in recent memory.
