Ben isn't the fighter Shogun is, but he's just as tough and a lot bigger, his punches will hurt Vera quickly IMO.
The Shogun fight isnt even the issue, the Thiago Silva fight is the one that has me confused by this. If Thiago can take him down and keep him there what on earth is gonna stop Heavyweights from doing it?

Rothwell is a massive dude and if he gets Vera down he'll kill him. This isnt your 2006 Heavyweight division.
