if and it's a big if vera has adapted to cutting to 205 by this fight then it's vera all day. IF not, then it's jardine. If Jardine was the one fighting vera instead of reese...vera would have lost.

IMO as long as Vera gets his weight cut down and is in good condition i see him taking Jardine out with some brutal knees in the clinch, but he is going to have to go after Jardine and put constant pressure on him...If Vera lets up there is a good chance he will get KO'd, but im going with Vera 2nd rd KO....

I'm kind of surprised you guys feel that Jardine will beat Vera or will give him a really good fight. Vera didn't do good against Reese Andy because he was worried about takedowns the whole fight, this will be different. Jardine will stand and get knocked out within 2 minutes.

Agree that this will be a standup war. We'll see lot's of good striking in this one. I'm hoping for a BV KO in round 2.

If Vera attacks he'll demolish Jardine, but if he stays on the outside and just uses his reach Keith could get into a groove and take it.

i see this fight being fight of the night, keith has to win this fight, ufc has gave him no love so imo 1 more loss = later, and vera's last fight was not worth 200k, he is going to go 110% so i think this is a great fight at a great time

Vera is the more skilled fighter on the feet and the ground. I expect Vera to win this rather easily as long as he learns to cut weight properly.

Seriously, I was pretty dissapointed the Thiago Alves vs Sanchez fight was moved, but this card is just getting stacked again. It just keeps getting better. This is the card I'm most looking forward to.

If Vera can't handle the cut this time, he's in trouble. I think Keith is going to destroy him when the cardio tank runs out on Vera.

Lots of people picking Vera to win this fight. I like Vera also but his last 3 fights have really dissapointed me. Until he proves me wrong and beats down someone like Jardine. I'm not going to pick him against top level talent.

I'm really suprised at not alot of people picking Jardine either. Must have forgotten the win against Liddell. I know he lost to Silva but Vera isn't a in your face fighter like Silva or Alexander. He's going to have a better chance because Vera likes to pick his shots. It looked like Vera was trying to counter punch in his last fight and Jardine tore apart the last counter puncher (Liddell) he faced.

Jardine wins with TKO close to the end of the 2nd round.

Vera is going to destroy Jardine. not as bad as Wanderlei but it'll be impressive. hopefully its a head kick.

Wow, Vera is trying really really really hard to erase his losses. He's just taking fight after fight without any time off. I like Vera, but his last fights have been pretty boring, but this against Jardine is a smart move. It pretty much guarantees a knock out and an exciting fight.

-i should add it's only smart if he wins, because i have Jardine by KO Rd 1. These two will go after each other, or Vera will fight not to lose and get KO'd Rd 2 ;)
