Sweet! I didn't know this fight was on the card. Vera is one of the only heavyweights I actually like to watch, along with Arlovski.
I guess that comment tells you what I think about the Heavyweight class. But by no means do I think they should get rid of it. Not only because of the obvious promotional problems that were mentioned, but also because there's just no need to do it.
I'm sure with the money the UFC has been seeing over the last two years (especially the last two years) they're getting to the point that they will be able to sign some big talent in the next year or so. They may even be able to steal a couple from Pride FC. Now, will they spend that money on Heavyweights? That's anyone's guess. But it's not like Heavyweights are hard to come by. Nor do they have to be particularly talented. Hell, look at Tim Sylvia. His height alone is enough to cause a skilled fighter a lot of problems. He's just a big freak if you ask me.
