    I think Vera is making some potentially bad career choices now. He's requesting a huge signing bonus because of the possibility to fight in Elite XC, but here's a couple problems

    1) Even if he gets to Elite XC after his UFC contract expires (8 months!), that company has a good chance of fizzling out like the WFA. So what does he do then? The UFC might not want to resign him and if they do, they likely won't promote him the same way they did before.

    2) In 8 months after his current contract is over, Elite XC may not be able to pay as much if it even exists

    I think UFC will make him a super star if he stays... If he chases the short term $$ right now, it will hurt him badly later on...
