Can Brandon Vera see into the future?

I know this will be my second Brandon Vera story in succession but when I was getting information for the other story I found a link to an interview with Vera by conducted on November 9th, 2006.

It’s a very good and long interview that centers around Vera’s up and coming fight with Frank Mir at UFC 65 but they also discuss other events at the time. In the second part of the interview, I stumbled upon this…

Luis Cruz: Now let me ask you this, do you think there’s anybody in the UFC light heavyweight division that can beat Shogun?

Brandon Vera: Umm [very long pause]

Luis Cruz: [laughing] That’s a long time to be thinking..

Brandon Vera: I know.

Luis Cruz: [laughs] To me, he’s number one overall.

Brandon Vera: Yeah, Chuck could beat him and honestly I think Forrest Griffin could beat Shogun. His style is different. Like Forrest is a gamer, you know what I’m saying? He’s always game and his style, I think, matches up well with Shogun.


And that ends this pointless post.
