I dont think Vera can have any excuse this time.
But it goes to show how someone as arrogant as Vera can be slaughtered for a lackluster performance, whereas Dan Henderson found himself in a similar situation against Palhares, but people kinda let it go.
Granted, Hendo's fight wasnt AS dull as Vera's, but it was a pretty uninteresting bout, and Hendo definately played it safe in that match up. UFC is big money, and to lose 3 consecutive fight tends to mean a stop gap in a fighters UFC career. And i can understand why Vera wanted to play it safe and play for the UD. But i do wish he had the balls to admit to it. Maybe the weight cut did affect him so much, i'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but as i said, if he looks unimpressive on saturday, he really cant have any excuse this time around
