    I'm looking forward to this one. I don't think it is a given that Vera will win. He would have had a much easier time if he had been able to negotiate the contract back when he had a chance to fight Tim for the title. I think Tim will come back pissed. If not, it may be the last we see of him.

    I hate to say it, but I am taking Sylvia. I don't think that Vera will be able to overcome the reach and size/strength disadvantage.

    Tim will out-athlete him.

    No, I don't know. It could either way, but I'll take Vera to slowly dismantle Tim with leg kicks.

    I was thinking the same thing. Prob a UD or Spilt. I don't see this being a very excity fight, mark my words. I hope Vera wins though. I really like his fighting style.

    Thank you, i needed that this AM.

    I think it will be a good fight, mainly cause as i said i see Tim comming out really hungry/pissed off. It will be an interesting match def, and it will be interesting to see how vera deals with the reach more than the size.

    If i had to choose, i would go with Vera by UD or maybe a late rd 2 sub.

    Anytime, bud. I saw that someone mistook you for your Sherk avator. Savage is so jealous.

    ^Indeed. I was flattered, but you compare me and Sherk and the only things we have in common are we like hitting the weights, have kid(s) and are slightly vertically challenged.

    Im getting so excited for the ufc 74, mainly for the GSP/Kos fight!

    I'm pulling for Vera on this one.
    Maybe we will get lucky and he will retire the Maniac for good.
    Hopefully the time off will not hurt him. It should be a great fight.
