He's a nasty striker when he's on, and a bore when he's off. I voted don't care, I like his style but his primadonna act a few years back put me off, so I'm in the middle with it.

He is also delusional if he still thinks he will hold the LHW and HW belt at the same time.

Meh. I didn't vote either way, because he makes me say, meh. Funny guy, though.

I imagine Bones will wreck him.

To me, he needs to be more aggresive. He seems to manage himself to much instead of going for the kill.

Damn, I wonder if the other 55% of the voters actually cared if the results wouldn't be dead even right now. C'mon, there's gotta be some more Vera fans out there right? ...Maybe some more haters?

I like the guy but would like to see a lot more from him. His striking is good, used to be great, and he's got good ground skills as well. I just think he:

1. Needs to rebuild whatever he lost that weakened his Muay Thai, and:
2. ...Nope that's it.

His ground is solid (not the best by any account, but good) and if his striking can better itself beyond what it already is, or rather was before his inexplicable downturn, he has a chance to be in contention for the title.
