Other names were Denis Kang and Gouveia. The former had so much promise, that I am surprised his career turned out the way it did.
Agree... On paper Vera had all the Skills.... The standup, the wrestling, the BJJ
He just couldnt put it together in MMA
Kang never seemed the same after the Akyama fight... He had so much promise in Pride...
Gouveia is another good one. On paper his skills are very good.
