If Vera fights like he did in his last fight he will chop Hamill down quick. By the time Hamill decided to take it to the will he be able to with beat up legs.

I have to disagree with most of you. I think Hamill takes this fight. I agree that Vera has the stand up edge but Matt is hard to knock out and I don't think Vera can stop Matts takedowns. Matt wins this fight with some solid ground and pound.



AGREED i just think hamill is far too strong for vera

I know Vera isn't yoked, but he's moving down from HW. I don't think Hamill's strength will be an issue for Vera.

I think this is a case of Joe Silva and the UFC trying to swing some popularity from an over-rated fighter (Hamill) to an under-rated fighter (Vera) IMO.

I got to go with Hamill in this fight. He is going to be way stronger then Vera.

i gotta go with Vera, Vera will pick Hamill apart in stand up considering Hamill hasn't faced a stand up fighter as good as Vera...and i dont think Hamill's strength will be a problem since Vera is used to fighting HW's

I think Vera takes it in a similar fashion to Franklin. Hammil will most likely try to feel him out and strike in round one, and get his legs totally taken away by Veras kicks, making it harder for him to shoot for the rest of the fight. Plus I still dont like Hammils chances on the ground against somebody with solid jits, it only took Franklin like 30 seconds to get an armbar so Matt had to let him straight back up....

Vera, round 3 TKO.



Just about sums it up for me! Props!
