Then you look at Ryan Couture who just grits down and keeps going or heck even Travis Brown recently. Can't teach toughness.
I can still remember the hype surrounding him. Vera wanted to be the man who defeated Chuck Liddell and carry titles in both the LHW and HW division. Now he's considered wasted potential.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

this was that kind of fight where you could see the difference ... Who really is a HW and has the heart of a UFC HW top 10 fighter.
