Brandon's had some disappointing fights lately but I still believe in the guy and root for him in every fight. I even rooted for him against Randy! Hopefully Brandon can make a big turnaround in his fight with Bones. I might be delusional but I can definitely see Brandon getting into the title-picture again eventually.

Its good to see someone that loves him, cause i lost hope.

And The Legacy is right Jones is just going to go right threw him.... He is just a stepping stone...

Hope he gets out of his funk one day

Sig credit to my Homie! limba!

Holy crap. I was expecting more loves. Uses his kicks, punches and knees effectively. He is easily one of the best strikers in all of the UFC. I chose "Love him" obviously.

I went with don't care. I think he has some skills for sure, but I think he is really cocky and walking out of the cage after the Couture fight and pretty much pouting about it didn't do anything for me.

People, at least admit Vera has some of the best leg kicks in all of MMA.

Vera looked like a monster in the fight he had before Couture, i wonder if he can look like that against a high quality opponent.

Well he has Jon Jones next so we will find out how good Bones is. If Vera brings his A game it could be a great fight!

I was a fan of Vera, not so much now... He should and could be so much better. I do hope he gets out of that slump. Don't hate him, want to start being a fan of his again. His potential is there to be great, but has some type of fighters block.

Meh. I don't really care for him. He's just there, I would only root for him if he's facing someone I don't like.
