by all rights he should have had a dominating performance. Dana gave him Andy as a warmup gift.

Andy is nobody's warm-up gift. I don't know if you followed IFL at all but he is a force with great wrestling and GnP and presented a serious threat to Vera on the ground. So it was in Vera's absolute best interests to be cautious and avoid being taken down at all costs.

Say what you want about an exciting loss getting you further, but I am pretty sure he would have been told to go get a win elsewhere if he had lost to Andy. Rarely does Dana let a three loss streak slide. And he's still in the UFC so I guess the cautious performance didn't hurt him too much.

Riiiight



He cut 30 pounds huh? Did he ever weigh over 230 at HW? Funny that he'd weigh MORE while cutting to 205 than he did while fighting at HW....
Thats what he claimed may have been less, regardless he took the fight on about month's notice i believe and he said he liked to eat whatever he wants so maybe he was just fat on his off time

Ya I know it's what he said, but a lot of bullshit and excuses come out of Brandon's mouth so I definitely don't believe him. Before the Andy fight he was saying how the cut is going so easy and how his weight is super low and shit too... he's a grade A bullshitter

Either way i expect better things from him this fight, he's walking around supposedly at around 205 no cutting needed shouldn't gas as easily and hopefully he'll let his hands go and KO Jardine cause i can't stand him!!!

Wow! A lot of Vera hate going on. I've always thought he was a pretty good fighter. Sure he had a few boring fights/losses lately, but I think that will change...hopefully with this upcoming fight. If he fights Jardine like he used to perform, I think he will will no problem with an exciting show on top of that.

That's why Brandon Vera is the fighter I dislike the most. He is pure BS, every time.

One of the most overrated fighters ever.

See I don't think he's overrated. In fact I think he's underrated as of now. Vera is still a really legit fighter with a legit brown belt and underrated wrestling skills. His striking is also pretty good as well. I think Jardine is a bad match up for him though

I don't think he is underated considering he is the fav in the Jardine matchup. If he was the underdog in this fight my lips would be sealed, but I just don't understand why people have so much faith in the guy ... hmmm...maybe I should shut up about having faith considering how inconsistant Jardine is...
