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???

Vera didn't look good on the ground against Scherner at all, and Silva > Scherner

If thats all u have heard about Silva, i say do your homework a little bit more before you make such a bold statement.

I think that most people are hyping Silva based on his fights other than the one against Sylvia. He's a better fighter than he showed in that fight. I'm not saying that Vera is going to lose, but this is an MMA match and those other accomplishments don't mean all that much in this fight.

i dont know a lot of people give silva credit for what he was able to do against aleks also big tim couldnt finish assuerio off which is notable i am pretty sure he would end it with vera. silva has a bjj and muay thai background as well not to mention he is a true hw.

This fight will be Vera`s biggest test to date.If he will win this fight i can see him being champion in less than a year.

good work, i said most of the hype - i.e. other forum posters claiming his performance against sylvia in the ufc is enough to grant him an edge over vera - so that's not "all i've heard"
i think you should do some more homework to practice your READING before you make such a bold statement

and yes I know he beat overeem, and Alex which still doesn't impress me that much

vera is the next big thing
