I think it's just the fact he's fighting tougher guys...
Sylvia, Werdum and Jardine.. These guys make him look no where near as good.
The Reese Andy fight was poor aswell, but that's probably because of the really quick weight cut. Reese isn't a bad fighter either.
His big win before was against Frank Mir, who has awful striking. So even though it's a pretty big name on Vera's record, it's not exactly seriously impressive if you beat the hell out of Frank Mir in the stand-up.
Fedor fights I want to see..
Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia -
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski -
hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..
