    god i hope they don’t put Vera up against Lesnar…. the only way Vera can win that fight is if Lesnar catches a knee to the face shooting in on Vera and it rocks him…. we know nothing of his chin… his ground game will be superb once he works submission defense more…. and his standup is good just based on his reach and power

    Vera can win that fight any damn way he pleases. He has great muay thai, has very good greco roman wrestling and also has very good jiu jitsu.

    Lesnar right now has great wrestling and a bee in his bonet.

    to the retard who posted the thread about vera not being able to beat silvia, for one silvia is one of the best heavyweights in the world and 2nd vera broke his hand in the first round and still went to a decision with the same guy who knocked out a healthy arlovski not once but twice, note to yourself, don’t comment on the sport unless you know your facts

  • Pete says:

    To BIRKWON: Tim Sylivia is NOT one of the best heavy-weights in the world. He’s a good fighter……just not one of the best. The biggest thing Sylvia has going for him is his size. With the new breed of heavy-weights rolling into the UFC – you’ll see Sylvia less and less. He’ll be fighting in the IFL or WEC before you know it. Before you go calling people “retards”, you should know what you’re talking about yourself.

  • Mister B says:

    Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to see Chuck fight live, but we are really paying the price for this great fighter gracing our shores.

    1) Last year at the 02 (UFC 75) my ticket was £100, this time (85) the same seat is £175

    2) Dana stated that the events here in the UK are running at a loss, with Chuck taking a big slice of the 85 purse this will not leave much over for other fighters. So I don’t think we will see any other big names at 85, just fighters that make up the numbers.

  • gotit says:

    i have got to disagree about saying silvia isnt one of the best heavyweights in the world, you have to consider the quality of wins the man has and he also has fought top contenders, he has wins over vera, arlovski twice, and ricco rodriguez when ricco was basically at the top of his game. and if you want to throw in the beating he gave to cabbage correira who has a head like a cinder block. losses to randy, mir (snappin his arm), and nogueira hurt him a little but cmon in my opinion if you got 26-4 record with basically all his losses coming in ufc title fights, your still one of the top heavyweights in the world, esp considering none of your current Pride Heavyweights are doing what everyone expected in the ufc………..nogueira is up there but not after fedor gets in

    oh and if those fights are correct, does anyone else just got the feeling jorge rivera is gettin carried out on a stretcher?

  • aceyeager says:

    tim silvia is still in his prime. his losses arent losses to be ashamed of. randy cotoure arguablly the greateset fighter to grace the octagon and his loss to nogueira he got caught in a choke it happens. i do agree with gotit about fedor. fedor aginst arlovski i think would be good. arlovski has heavy hands and good takedown defense.

  • fistoffury says:

    Fedor vs Arlovski would be a mauling! Arlovski is not the same fighter since he lost to Silvia and Fedor is quite possibly the best heavyweight in MMA today.

  • Derek B. says:

    Fistoffury Fedor “was” the best Heavyweight in MMA Today.

    He even admits in an interview I read that he doesn’t consider himself the best heavyweight in the world.

  • aceyeager says:

    im not saying that hes not. i agree that fedor is the best. if any 1 in here can think of 1 person who can beat hi please enlighten us. all im saying is that would be a fight id like to watch

  • el capitan says:

    i didn’t read anything leading up to my comment but vera is on the next level he is quick like a smaller fighter but still almost as big and strong. he takes it. and the un and coming if not already a star in my opinion is james irvin, hes a beast and rashad is a match but i think irvin is taking in because of his focus

    Agree or Disagree: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

  • aceyeager says:

    i got rashad winning because of his wrestling hes not gonna stand with irvin he hits to fuckin hard. and vera is a good fighter but not elite. and when i say elite i mean fedor, cotoure,nogeira, old cro cop pre ufc.

    put him in their with fedor and c. no disrepect but its the truth

    Marcus Davis vs. Swick will be a great fight. Marcus has some of the heaviest hands in UFC and keeps getting better and better.
