    I think he got worse as the years went on. I mean Kieth Jardine beat him for god sakes. Not only does he lose but his last 2 he got worked. IMO he beat Randy though, that was a win for him purely because he is Randy couture. He has had some tough opponents though. I mean Couture, Jon Jones and then Thiago Silva. Thats almost not fair. He could probably do well against guys like Ortiz, Hamill, Bonner, Lil Nog. Jon Jones and Silva are pretty much tier one light heavy weights close to title shots. On a side note, After Ortiz loses his next fight he better get cut.

    I just think that vera always looks like he doesnt give a shit if hes even there or not. when he wins he doesnt look that impressive and when he loses its usually fairly bad. i mean silva was playing the drums on his head for christ sake. And I agree Ortiz is done next time he loses.

    I called for this a while back. He started his UFC career pretty strong but then he just fell off. The UFC gave him more than enough opportunity to get on track. Starting with his loss to Tim, he only won 3 fights and lost like 6. He came on the scene strong and was over rated because of his four wins but went downhill from there.

    Silva just looks mean, like the kind of guy who genuinely wants to hurt the guy hes fighting

    Is it just me or does his mouth guard in the pic look just like one of the eggs off a mcmuffin?

    @least he looked good on the feet though. He just seemed to lack a real motivation to win.

    Yeah, I agree with you guys all around. He came in with some promise, but the level of competition was too much for him. Strikeforce will snatch him up and declare him among the World Best.

    I was really dissapointed in his last performance. I like Vera and was rooting for him to win. I knew it was gonna be a tough fight though – T Silva is tuff!!

    Silva looked way bigger than Vera too!

    Vera needs to go back to the drawing board big time – if possible he needs to put on more upper body muscle – then cut more weight… he looked weak
