UFC Quick Quote: 'Upsets happen'

"I think this is the best training camp Matt's ever had. He's had more than 80 rounds of sparring so far. We know St. Pierre is a beast. But people have short memories. Wasn't Randy Couture a big underdog to Tim Sylvia? Upsets happen. People look at Matt and he doesn't look incredibly polished in his standup, but he's harder to hit than people think. He's got heavy hands, timing and great instincts. And most of all, he's got guts."

-- Ray Longo, trainer for UFC welterweight title challenger Matt Serra, who believes his fighter is dangerous, prepared and underrated going into his showdown with Georges St. Pierre at UFC 69 this weekend as told to NBCSports.com.
