If they wanna leave a black mark on Vera why dont they just have Mirko kick his head off.

Just so everyone knows. These threads were all over the place about how Herring was going to do the same to O'brien. And O'brien dominated from start to finish. O'brien controlled a guy far bigger than Vera for three rounds. I wouldn't be all over Vera's nuts like this.

Think about it. Why would Dana have Vera fight O'brien if he didn't think O'brien would win? Dana would wan't to make Vera look like shit before he left. It would hurt Elite XC and Vera. If he gives Vera a win over a guy like O'brien it would help Vera and Elite XC. So obviously Dana believes o'brien would win.

Get off O'Briens back hes a 22 year old guy who just beat a very expieranced international star. People said the same thing about guys like Rashad and Kos and look how far theyve come along and neither of those guys beat anyone near Herrings caliber ever let alone at that age.

If you’re judging the entire fight on size alone you’ll have to remember that Vera took apart Frank Mir (6’ 1” and 240), Assureio Silva (6’ 1” and 240) and Fabiano Scherner (6’ 3” and 245) and only the Scherner fight went past the 1st round.

Size is not a good indicator of skill or even strength. Cro Cop is only listed at 6’ 2” and 220 but I don’t recall anyone saying that he’s too small to dominate larger fighters.

Vera is the real deal, he’s asking for a ridiculous amount of $$$ but I doubt his manager expects to get it, I’ll bet he’s looking for a compromise (this is how business is done). The UFC needs better heavyweight fighter’s period. There was an article in a local San Diego paper recently about Vera (cover story) and how he’s looking to up the pay fighters get for being contenders.

If O’ Brian fights Vera he’ll lose badly.

Vera has good BJJ too. Where as Herring is pretty much dog meat when hes on the bottom like that. Even if Obrien gets the take down Vera will be looking for the submission. I think itll be a boring first round with a Vera KO in the second from knees in the clinch.

Yea but Rashad and Kos actually have explosive takedowns. This guys takedowns were slow and lazy. Vera is a monster, he will kill this kid. Vera has good submissions, hands, knees, all O'Brien has is wrestling. He isnt ready for Vera!!
