Default Better Victory: Randleman vs Cro Cop I or Matt Serra vs GSP I ??

Im not sure how I should rate these two wins, so help me here.
They are certainly great in my view, but both are impressive in different ways.

Would be interesting explain your criteria.
Think.

discuss.

Serra because he beat the champ who was the clear #1 guy.

Serra is also a ****in lightweight.

Serra v GSP was more significant, but what a way to end the fight

I didn't know Rosenthal was a PRIDE referee.

I think because of the way Randleman ended it, using his hands this is close to say.

But yeah, Serra beat a great champion....

Serra vs GSP 1, clearly.

Reasons being that GSP is a greater, more rounded, better fighter than Crocop,

the Serra loss came in the middle of a great run both before and after (coming off wins over Hughes, Penn, Sherk, Trigg, Miller, going on to wins over Koscheck, Fitch, Hughes, Penn, etc),

Serra was really a lightweight and GSP a big natural welterweight,

the fight only came about because of the TUF agreement, Serra was not and probably never would have been considered a legit #1 contender without the show,

Serra had lost his last fight before the show (to Karo Parisyan),

it was just a much bigger surprise, the level between the fighters was bigger. Randleman was coming off two losses, but they were to superb fighters (Sakuraba and Rampage). Those guys are miles ahead of the guys who'd beaten Serra in the UFC (including Shonie Carter and Din Thomas). Randleman was always perceived as dangerous, Serra was not.

Kevin's KO was vicious.

Randleman for me. At that time NO ONE expected Kevin to have even the slightest chance of doing that to CC. Serra on the other hand despite being a wide outsider was seen as a legitimate test for GSP because of his BJJ.
