I call him OVERRATED because everyone and their dog is saying Vera is the next face of the HW division... COME ON give me a break.
One more time, I've seen his fights, Im not overly impressed. The only impressive fact about Vera (to date) is his record. Considering only 1 of his wins is against a decent fighter, again NOT IMPRESSED to the point I say he'll beat Lidell or Sylvia.
I made this thread cause all I see lately is "Vera is God" "Vera the new face of the HW division" Isnt that just a TAD premature?
I love Bisping too, I think hes the new face of the UFC myself. But you dont see me making "The Count will PWN the ufc" threads do you>?
Realistically speaking, Vera is very good, he might just be the champ SOMEDAY, but to jump the gun and start calling him a mma GOD is crap.
OVERRATED in the mma community. Period.
