Ok, I'm bored, so I'm starting up the Brandon Vera Bandwagon.

I hope I'm not his ONLY fan I actually believed him when he said he would be next champ, now he's almost embarrassing at big Timmay's level.
Many think he beat Couture, and his fights with Sozynski and Mir are good wins.
A roided Thiago Silva is not a good match-up for anyone, and Jon Jones is a freak. So maybe he isn't sucking as badly as everyone thinks.



Anyone with me? Or am I just as deluded as Vera? :

You don't have to be cruel bro. You won't be ROFLing when Vera smashes Jones in the rematch I'm not being serious. But I can dream, cant I?

did you believe him when he said that he would hold the lhw and hw belts at the same time ?
i was a fan but he just looks so weak and fragile compared to all the rest of the 205 guys. he does have good kicks and knees but he has no punching power and is unable to pull the trigger. he's been barely hanging on being in the ufc the past few years.

Idk about that man, I think everyone not Jon Jones and Greg Jackson would be ROFLing if Vera smashed Jones. That would be when I look at my beer and really consider cutting it out of my diet as it has clearly altered reality.

Vera will HUMILIATE Sho-pistol (The Voice of Reason is in session, kids)

Hua hand picks his opponents more than a nation full of Ed Soares at a ass chapped convention for ROSETTA STONE.

Joe Silva usually makes some pretty good, even, match-ups.

This is not one of them.

This used to be the biggest bandwagon in MMA.

Vera probably will not be victorious against Shogun, but his record as a light heavyweight involves losing one competitive decision, one outright wrong decision, once against an opponent whose urine was suspiciously inhuman and to the best light heavyweight ever. Definitely not as bad as his record suggests.

Yeah I don't like his up himself personality. But hopefully Jones and Thiago beat some humility into him. I still don't think he deserves to be a +680 dog.


How did he disrespect your friend?


Oh and for the record Aussiemma...

did you believe him when he said that he would hold the lhw and hw belts at the same time ?
No, I thought LHW was possible.

I was a member of this bandwagon and i'm still kind of on it but it's because I want to believe in him more than anything lol

I expect him to get beat by Rua but possibly put on a good show and gain some respect back from the fans.

If he KO's Rua, where will that put him in the ranks?

I used to be a big fan of his. I still think he's a good well rounded fighter with some potential. He just needs to get his head right and get his aggression back.

You're definitely not his only fan though. My girlfriend loves the guy for some reason.

I think if Vera wins it has to rank his as #1.............upset of the year so far!

To be fair to Vera though, he's really only been outclassed by Jones (not counting Silva's roid-induced beat down) since his defeat to Werdum back in 2008. Yes since then he has lost to Jardine and Couture, but they were both close fights, and I actually thought he got screwed in his fight against Randy.

However, I'm not the biggest Vera fan due to the fact you never know what fighter is going to show up, and with that said, I don't see the best Brandon Vera even beating the Shogun that showed up against Forrest Griffin the first time round.

Vera hasn't had a bandwagon since 2008-ish this is surprising I wish you luck TS

Never the less, I really want Shogun to win in impressive fashion.
