Shogun by anyway he wants...Hes a better striker and better on the ground...But i think Shogun decides to strike with Vera and puts him to sleep in round 1

I take Shogun. They both have tons of potential. I think Vera has a chance to become a great fighter but I think Shogun could possibly end up being the best mma fighter ever. Or at least second to Fedor.

Brandon Vera advocates? I know there's at least one of you.

I think Vera's ground game is probably pretty solid, but when your training partners are Ninja and Wanderlei Silva, the fight's not going to the ground.

I think Vera's got alot of potential, but the fact that a guy with seven fights is being toted as one of the UFCs best is kind of bothersome, especially if he really thinks he could throwdown with Chuck Liddell.

Vera needs more experience before getting into a fight with the best light heavyweight in the world. But then again Vera fights heavyweights, huge ones and has beaten them easily including a PRIDE veteran in 2 minutes (Assuerio Silva).

I have to go with Vera....simply because he trains with my crew, and his BJJ with Lloyd Irvin (my instructor) :D

But i know the experience factor is huge in this one. If he wins it will blow his career up like when Franklin beat Shamrock.
