    the more i think about randy v vera, i keep thinking that randy wont handle the cut very well. vera has decent enough wrestling to keep the fight on the feet and win the striking battle. and maybe randy has the same gameplan against vera that he gave to forrest and gina. :wiggle:

    Man, these all look like toss-ups to me.
    Vera can pull out a TKO, but then again Randy could control him against the cage or on the ground and win a decision.

    Swick has the speed and technique to pick apart Hardy, but Hardy has KO power and from what I've seen decent technique. Standing I think this could go either way really.

    Bisping should be able to handle Kang, but then again Kang has a really good night every once in a while. He has the tools to take Bisping, I just don't know if he will use them to the highest potential.

    Wilks and Brown can go either way, same with Pearson Riley, though I think Riley pulls it out.

    Unless Vera can keep Randy away with his punches, no way can he stop the takedown.

    I hope Kang pops his head off with a guillotine.

    Randy will beat Vera and it'll be ugly and probably boring. Luckily it's only three rounds.

    same here. but i dont see that happening. when shit gets out of hand for bisping he doesnt take it to the ground, he turns the fight into a track meet.

    Yeah I agree. I don't know what makes it weird, but it is. Possibly because Couture usually fights the best guys, and Vera isn't one of them.

    The rumored story behind the falling out is Brandon Vera tried to stiff Lloyd over on money owed for training, claiming the training provided was garbage because he kept losing. Lloyd blames Brandon for losses because he sucks and has no heart.
