Brandon Vera Vs Chuck Liddell

I feel this fight will def happen within the next year especially if Chuck remains champion..I see Vera getting a title shot with Sylvia but I dont see him beating Tim because of the huge size advantage..Therefore I think Vera will go down to lhw and challenege chuck for the belt. This is a tough match up for Chuck, Vera is a tall rangy guy with good strikes and overall skills. I think CHuck would win this fight, but he doesnt Ko Vera, i think think he wins a unanimous decision in a close fight

I agree, Vera is a very well rounded fighter and would give Chuck a good fight but I think Chuck would win.

I don't see how Vera could beat Chuck if Tito, Babalu, Babalu, Couture, Couture, Vernon White, Vitor, and Alistair all got KOed (or TKOed) by Chuck. I don't think Vera is even close to being as good as some of those on the list. I don't understand what's so impressive about Vera and why everyone talks so highly about him. I mean, he might be really good, but he hasn't really shown it yet I don't think. I didn't think he looked that great beating those crappy opponents in the last year. He seriously has not fought anybody worth bragging about except maybe a much shorter Assuerio Silva. He's basically just someone from TUF with the resume he has. He's 7-0 but hasn't beaten anybody even close to Chuck or Arlovski. I'm not saying he IS a bad fighter, but what has he shown for some of you to think he is worthy of a title shot. Rashad Evans is 8-0 but that doesn't mean he could come close to beating Chuck or Arlovski. Maybe Vera will prove me wrong moving down a weight class, but right now I don't see what all the big hype about him is? Chuck would knock him out faster than he did Babalu imo and so would Arlovski. I hope Vera fights Mir with Mir at 100% and in shape so we can see what Vera's really made of. I hope he proves me wrong because the UFC needs some better HWs and LHWs.

If he moves down a weight class I can't even see him beating Griffin or Bisping honestly.

Exactly, future, not present.

Vera is patient though, good to have against an opponent like Chuck. It probably wouldnt end in the first round, but Chuck would catch him sometime in the 2nd or 3rd maybe.

If this match were to happen then it would most likely be a heavyweight bout because Chuck is seriously considering moving up a weight class. I am not saying it is going to happen for sure but that is what I heard.
