For some of you that have seen me on here, I hope you know that I am not a bandwagoneer, but let me start by saying I have liked Vera since the first fight I saw him in. So I knew he would take out Mir and keep going strong.
I think Vera can get it done. Sylvia does not impress me at all. However, I think maybe they will give Vera a shot at Arlovski first before they put him up against Sylvia... but who knows?
Arlovski fights somebody next month. Vera will have another fight at a minimum before he gets his shot. Other than Vera, I don't see anybody else going against Sylvia, the HW division is lacking. Unless somebody lights a fire under Cheik Kongo's ass again since he didn't do much his last fight, and I thought HE was going to be the next big contender.
