I think coming into this fight Brandon Vera is in deep trouble. He has looked

pretty solid in his fights so far. But i think he is an undersized heavyweight with

good knees and kicks but not great hands. His most notable opponet was Mir

And that was not the real Frank Mir. Tim is a big step up, and i think Vera is

way to over-confident and will get KO.

You could be right, his kicks and knees are definately his stronger assets but his hands are good enough, he can beat Tim with body and leg kicks tho if he fights a smart fight

Vera isn't overated, just a young gun, But I dont like his odd's.
I dont know why there is so many people jumping on Vera's band wagon.
I ain't saying that he is a bad fighter, No way! I just think that he really is too small for the heavyweight's.
Unless he take's a stool in with him, Those knee's ain't going anywhere near the Maine-iac's chin. Tim by TKO or Sub. All you Tim haters will be surprised. Vera is no Couture, Yet.
This show will rock! Gonna miss Randy's comment's on the main-event

right now i thinik vera is overrated, his fight with timmy will prove if he is or not, if he gives a competitive performance, which i think he will, then he is not overrated and a top 10 heavyweight. at this moment, however, he hasnt fought enough top guys to put him in the top 10.

He's not overrated. It's just a case of Tim being grousely underrated.

I'm 90/10 in favor of Tim for this fight. I will consider it a bigger shock than Serra beating GSP if Vera pulls it off. Then the idea that Vera is actually top ten competition will be plausible.

Obviously he has the potential to be, but to think that he is as of present day is a little premature.

Tim Slyvia possibly the most underrated fighter by the forum fans in the history of forums.

if the same tim that showed up to fight randy comes in to fight vera like that, he will loose,his striking looked horrible, slow and not on target.......vera pick him apart even more,,,but if the tim that beat ricco rodriguez shows up and the tim that beat up casbbage, he will have a better chance....

The smart thing for vera to do is take tim down, tims tkd defence wasnt good at all and i think vera can grind out a decision, but if the fight is standing i still think vera has a chance....

juanez13 » Posted 7/12/07 9:54:00PM

and about people saying he is too small for a heavyweight,i agree....but not always the biggest guys win, the smallerguys are wuicker, but still i think he would do much better at light heavy....ialso think guys like cro cop can cut down to light heavy, but some guys are just not made to cut weight,and loose their wuickness and what makes them good when they cut down...

I think Vera will do good and have a smart game plan. We all know what Tim's game plan is going to be, pick him apart on the feet. Hopefully, Vera will be able to get around Big Tim's jab and get inside. If Vera wins, then he should stay at HW and keep going, if he loses I think he should make the drop to LHW where IMO he could be champ.

I don't know if Vera is over rated or untested, but none the less I believe big Tim will put it on him.

NatedawgThaM » Posted 6/25/07 5:46:00PM

I actually agree with you..

People keep saying the new Tim is going to show up. Screw that Tim is probably pissed off and focused as ever. Tim's going to be aggressive and lean from his mistakes. He will KO Brandon Vera..

Hes the next Champ. believe that.

I won't believe the Hype, Brandon told me not to.

I guess I'm the only one who believes deeply that Vera is going to walk away with this one.
