Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski could likely face Brandon Vera during a pay-per-view (PPV) event to be held in November, according to two separate UFCmania.com sources.

Brandon Vera is the most overrated HW in the UFC. The highlight of his career was a win over an overweight and handicapped Frank Mir back in 2006.

What I am trying to say is that Vera will have his hands full with this one.

Absolutely agree. Vera will have his face full... with Andrei's fist of fury

Wow...this is one I've hoped to see for awhile. Finally Vera against a legit contender. Hopefully AA Ko's him.

Vera is overrated big time. Calling out chuck liddell. Give him a real heavy weight contender.

Well, Vera has alot to prove here
He's not overrated, he's unproven.
He has beaten every opponent UFC has given him.
THe guys the UFC has given him are decent guys.
Now they are giving him a chance to prove he is among the best.

Vera is a piece of shit. Calling out chuck liddell. Hope he gets his ass knocked out. Overrated.



Is Chuck related to you?? I don't know why you'd call Vera such names. He would KO Chuck in one round, with ease. AA is the one that's overrated. The UFC HW division was filled with nobodies and he took over knocking out cans. Watch his fight vs Rizzo...AA is not an elite or world class fighter. Vera will destroy him. You heard it here first.

WOW... Vera hasnt proved himself yet so to say that he would knock chuck out in one round is insane. And AA just beat fabricio werdum a top ten heavy weight (he may not of looked very impressive but i think we all can agree he definately won that fight) AA is with out a doubt a top 5 contender in the ufc heavyweight division.

I cant wait to see this fight (if it happens) Vera gets his chance to prove himself and we might see the return of the old AA not the new boring and cautious AA.

The one good thing about AA's next fight is this


No matter who it is, he will be in serious trouble.

Why? because AA is in a MUST win fight, and coasting to a w likely will just be considered a loss by the ufc. He has ONE fight left on his contract, if he loses an uneventful fight by dec, thats probably the last you'll see of him. If he wins an uneventful fight by dec, thats probably the last you'll see of him.

If he puts on a GOOD fight and gets stopped by whoever, he'll probably still be resigned. If he puts on a good fight and finishes it, he'll definitely be resigned.

Its without a doubt a fight(no matter who his opponant is) that AA is going to be unable to coast through if he wants to keep his job.

So, my theory is....regardless of who he is fighting next, they are in some major f*cking trouble...because AA will be trying to decapitate them I think.
