This. Vera is in trouble against anyone in the top 10 at HW in the UFC. Hunt would KO him into retirement.

Very interesting. Rothwell has been inconsistent and Vera has had some success at HW, albeit many years ago. It's better to try his hand at HW than getcreamed in the far more talented LHW division imo.

True, but you could say the exact same thing about his chances against the LHW top 10.

A heavyweight Vera can probably beat Rothwell, Schaub, Barry, Duffee, Del Rosario, etc. but once he reaches the top guys he'll get crushed.

Yeah I would also, I meant that his HW outlook may be bleak if he cant get his act together. I always thought Vera was a terrific fighter just that he could not put his talents together and I also thought he lacked the heart at times.

If Vera could beat Mir and wobble Werdum on the feet when they met, I am sure he has the talent to be in the top 10 at HW. He will have to deal with some of the heavy punchers but if Mir can be in the top 10 so could Vera.

Its Vera's heart I wonder about.

If a fighter doesn't take a picture, were they ever there and did they ever train?
