I like both of these fighters but i would have to give the edge to andrei despite his last couple lack luster performances he is still a threat.

I'm going with Vera. He's agressive, very good striker and a very good wrestler. Arlovski was a champion but I don't think he has looked all that impressive lately.



vera is NOT a good striker or good wrestler. hes decent but not good.



eveyrone has to remember. Arlovski fought a BORING fight against werdum not a bad fight. Arlovksi did everything needed to win and did it great. Being boring doesnt mean bad by any means.



Um, you don't think Vera's striking is good? His Muy Thai seemed pretty damn impressive to me.



nope. not a bit. this guy is overreated in every aspect in mma



ROB Kaman one of the greatest kick boxers of all time says that Vera could fight in K1, that is how good his stand up is............ and he is better then decent on the ground, much better.......AA is in trouble.

Vera KO's AA in Round 2. AA's way too tentative and has turned into (primarily) a counter puncher. Vera is very smart and will exploit this weakness with leg kicks and stiff, crisp punching. Sorry to all you AA fans, but he's going down in this one.

I may not believe that Vera is the next big thing but I think he's better than AA.

Just because AA's last fights where boring dosent meant he has less of a chance of winning. If he dose coast out the fight he has with vera he will probably have a better chance of winning it. Not saying I want that to happen.

It'll be a nice fight anyway. I wanted either one of them to fight Barnett ( if he sign with UFC) but in this case make it Tim Sylvia vs Barnett.

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.




Well, Vera isn't a piece of shit, but he is unproven and overrated. Chuck Liddell would KO Vera, period.

Andrei Arlovski has the potential to be one of the best fighters in the world. He should take his ability to PRIDE though, I think his nasty fighting style would fit in better there than in the UFC. I also think Shogun's style is completely neglected by the UFC, the footstomps, soccer kicks, head kicks? Shogun's tenacity is reduced greatly.

AA though, will assassinate Vera in the octagon, you'll see Vera go in there, get picked apart, and brutalized.

I just can't seem to jump on the "Vera is the next big thing" bandwagon. If he was half the fighter he thinks he is he would have the belt right now. There's a difference between confidence and arrogance.
However, if AA doesn't fight like we all know he can, Vera, at the end of the fight, will have his hand raised.
