I Guarentee Vera Will win
Vera will win, here is why:
Ground accomplishments: 8 time grapplers quest champion, finished 8th in ADCC I think 2005?, 2nd Place Pan Am Sport Jiu Jiutsu, 4 year starter in wrestling at Old Dominion
He also trains Muay Thai with Rob Kaman and I'm almost 100% positive that he's won some sort of U.S. amatuer Muay Thai title
Vera will win the fight standing or on the ground it doesn't matter, Assuerio Silva does not match up to him.
So far most of the Assuerio Silva hype I've heard centers around his performance against Tim Sylvia - a fight where Silva spent the entire time being punched in the face while attempting to pull guard = what is so impressive about that???
