BRANDON VERA



Vera started on the UFC before the era of gigantic heavy's, and he was a wrecking-machine with a ton of hype behind. Contractual disputes and Back to back loses to Tim Sylvia and Fabdoom kinda put a halt to that, he has since dropped to LHW and started to show promise after a couple of fights, seemingly he took a while to adjust well to this new weight class.

Now he's scheduled to face upcomer Jon Jones, and that should be a pretty interesting fights, anyways back to the point in case.

I like him, but not to the extent that I root for him no matter what.

That's exactly how I feel. I'm actually between the like and love stage at this moment of time, though. LOVE the way he fights but he has seemed quite sluggish recently. I figured that he was a nightmare match up for Randy Couture, but Randy beat him.

The kid has mad skills in both the striking and grappling area, but he needs to regain his killer instinct. Vera seems far too hesitant to go for the kill nowadays for whatever reason. If he can regain his confidence in muay thaing guys to death, then he'll be a threat to anybody in that division, including the likes of Machida, Shogun, Evans and Jones.

Really?? You don't think that there is anything redeeming about Vera when he fights?

I don't know what you mean with redeeming, but No! His fights make me wanna turn of the TV sometimes.. but I guess his bout with Jones will be a good one, but mostly because of Jones likely^^

Oh right, lol. Maybe he rubs you up the wrong way or something. But he has had exciting fights in the past. And yeah, his fight vs Bones Jones could be a FOTN contender.
