possibly the only two people who like vera as much as me are cabby and ESPADA9

vera wrestled for the airforce and has excellent bjj...i think obrien will be lucky to last the 1st round if he shoots like he did on herring...knee to the domeeeeeeeeee

i also think vera's counter offer was kinda a '**** you' to the ufc...hes tryin to make chedder so hes gonna go with Elite

I didnt say O'Brien would beat Vera. Of course those guys takedowns are gonna be more explosive than a HWs since theyre smaller. But O'Brien still has really good wrestling perhaps the best in the division and I think he has alot of potential.

14-1 in Forum Bets

I really hope O'Brien pulls this one out, you might think I am a **** for liking him and thats fine but he is a young guy and can only get better from here.

Well its half a good idea but they would have to make the fight 2nd to the main event which they dont want Vera getting any spotlight on UFC terms.

I think the reason they pitted Vera against O'brien is cuz of the boring style rather than the fact O'Brien will win.

The only edge Jake has on Vera is his wrestling ability, and Brandon is pretty damn good at wrestling. Otherwise, BJJ and Muay Thai just put him way over the top. This fight is such a horrible matchup for O'Brien and Brandon has something to prove.
I will personally give anyone 3:1 odds on $500.
I ll give out $1500 if O'brien wins....

If UFC wants to leave a black mark on Vera they should feed him to Cro Cop. imo that would be a much better match than O'Brian.
