    Brandon Vera is the future UFC HW and LHW Champ. He was a fairly top ranking greco roman wrestler who trained at the Olympic Training Centre with the best. He's a brown belt (maybe black now) under Lloyd Irvin, who produces some the best american grapplers, and he won second at the Pan Ams as a brown. He also trains kickboxing with the best kickboxer in the world, Rob Kaman. Vera is also extremely driven and works very hard. Sylvia is going to get steam rolled.

    This is a tough one to call. It's the first time Vera's going to face a top opponent. I think Sylvia knocks him out.

    This is one of those times I am betting for what I want to happen, not what i think will. I think Timmy is going to win the decision.

    But Brandon saying that he hopes randy didnt copy write the last fight cause he is gonna steal his moves makes me think he will actually do pretty well.

    checkii pretty much filled in the gaps for you.

    If you're such a big fan you'd surely know who Vera is. And if you don't, why not use Google or Sherdog, or go back and watch some UFCs that you've been "consistently" watching over the last few years and find out who he is, rather than posting in here and making yourself look ignorant.

    I seriously think you must be trolling!
