I'm a big Brandon Vera fan but I have to vote for Rua because of expeirence and that fact that he has fought better opponents.

I take Shogun. They both have tons of potential. I think Vera has a chance to become a great fighter but I think Shogun could possibly end up being the best mma fighter ever. Or at least second to Fedor.

Brandon Vera advocates? I know there's at least one of you.

I think Vera's ground game is probably pretty solid, but when your training partners are Ninja and Wanderlei Silva, the fight's not going to the ground.

I think Vera's got alot of potential, but the fact that a guy with seven fights is being toted as one of the UFCs best is kind of bothersome, especially if he really thinks he could throwdown with Chuck Liddell.

Vera needs alot more fights and overall experience to go up against a GP winner and just a guy who's faught some of the toughest names in the sport. Vera would be outclassed!

Vera needs more experience before getting into a fight with the best light heavyweight in the world. But then again Vera fights heavyweights, huge ones and has beaten them easily including a PRIDE veteran in 2 minutes (Assuerio Silva).

That makes the score PRIDE:8, UFC:2.

Still no shutouts, though.
