I think Krzystof has too much power in his hands, and i feel that he will eventually be able to catch Vera cleanly and turn off his lights. Krzystof 3rd round by KO

I wanna see Vera put on a good show as Muay Thai is what i train and love, but Soszynski has looked pretty solid in the UFC, not out-standing but solid. Vera should be well seasoned enough to take this.

Vera by decision. I am starting to see a shitty pattern develop in MMA. Neither of these guys are in any position to take any chances: Vera has a lot to lose, Soszynski has a lot to gain. I see a lot of caution in this fight but some good exchanges with Vera getting the better of them much like the Vera/Jardine fight. Jardine is no joke and Vera took him to a split decision at a time when he was still having weight cut issues (right?) He was not good enough to beat Jardine at that time, he is good enough to beat Soszynski in a UD at this time.

I like both these guys but neither strike me as having that "You can count on me when it counts" quality. Both guys would get eaten by at least 7 guys at 205. Hope Im wrong would love to see one of them become a contender. Winner gets Bader anyone?
VERA UD

A groan of tedium escapes me...

Vera is overrated,but I would be shocked If Vera did not take this.He himself is probably sick of hearing that he is overrated,and eager to prove otherwise.Vera by KO probably from knees or head kick in the first.

I didn't know either guy was overrated! I think Vera is taking things incredibly serious now and he`s on my list of guys who I don`t think will lose within the next year (with Jon Jones) so I have to stick my choice.

Vera by TKO

Vera was overrated, but since his fall from the tops of the HW division, people have been knocked off his nuts.

I like Krystof but Vera should dominate him in the striking, on the ground I think it boils down to who has the better position.

I think this fight stays off the mat and so Im picking Vera.

I am definatly not a fan, but I do think he is a UFC caliber fighter.His game would have to evolve by leaps and bounds for him to ever be better than six or seven at LHW;we all know about the depth in that division.His victory dance makes him look like a real dink.My statement above about UFC caliber fighter goes out the window if he loses because Dana does not give a crap about a fighter's potential.He will take care of business in this one.
