Thats a fight with Fireworks writtin all over it!

i would love to see them fight when they get a few wins under their belts. obviously both coming off of loses, shoguns because of his lack to give a piss about his health and veras coming to a no good referee.

But any who we would be bound to see high kick after high kick ! hah





(and my apologies to anyone who thought this thread was anything more than a dream match up)

I agree with you man, this would be an awesome fight. I would pick Shogun by sub in the 2nd or 3rd. Probably an armbar. Also, I agree with you saying that they need a few wins first. Maybe after Shogun is done with Soko.

I give it to Vera, he was one of the most skilled HWs, what ruined his climb was his small size, he will dwarf Shogun and tear him apart.

These are two of my favorite fighters. I wanna say Shogun but I am taking Vera. Why. It clear as day. Vera is a bigger version of him. Look at the way they fight. It would be fun to watch. But I dont like see fighters I root for fighting each other. Electric.

shogun, if he could take alistair's muay thai skills, i dont think hell have a problem with a smaller weaker Vera.

I love Allistair Overeem. By far one of the most underated fighers of all time. But that is a horrible analogy. Vera is a much faster striker than Overeem, is much more versatile, and is a total fighter. He can win anywhere it goes. Overeem is stricly standup, and does not have Vera's fast moves. Vera is a bigger version of Shogun. How can you not see that.

Vera has holes in his game that Shogun does not, and they dont really strike in the same manner. They have similar stand-up styles, but the way they use it differ.

Allistair is not slower than Vera by far in any aspect of striking. Allistair is one of the most dangerous strikers at lhw..........during the first round before he gassed anyways.



Back on topic. Shogun is better at everything Vera is good at. Shogun has such a pedigree in Muay Thai and BJJ that he would just overwhelm Vera pretty quick and easily end the fight with a TKO. Vera is highly overrated in my eyes

Vera is sooooo overrated

If Shogun can get back to the point he used to be at I'd agree he takes it any day, but we'll really have to see how he looks when we finally get him back.
