Maybe Vera fought one of the best fights of his life after a pretty poor last 5 years??
Shogun beat Machida at Machida's best and where the MMA world, like me, though that it really was the Machida Era. If Shogun comes in incredibly sluggish and poor then yeh MAchida will win. But if Shogun comes in even at 85%, I think he will beat Machida. Shogun has the perfect style for Machida. That Chin and heart and aggression will always keep him in the fight against Machida.
