I was hoping Vera would at least make it competitive and not get blown out in the opening 2 minutes. My wish came true, although I never really felt like Shogun was close to being finished, Vera kept coming back when I figured he was done. I was excited to see Vera show his heart even if he was overmatched by an underperforming Shogun. I would love to see him in a kickboxing match with some of the mid-tier divisional guys to see how that goes. Up and coming guys (perhaps above mid tier) like Te Huna as others have mentioned would be fun, but watch Joe Silva throw him in against Bader or another wrestling ace and the dream will be for not. I know it's MMA and not K-1, but sometimes a nice stand up war is gratifying.
