Henderson is a better wrestler than Vera and got submitted by Anderson. Not only that, but...Well, sure Henderson won that first round but...It was useless, hah. He didn't do anything. Some short range punches to the side of Anderson's head that had no real power to them because of their range. Hendo putting his hand over Anderson's mouth - It was a really ineffective round.
Vera would have to avoid getting submitted, keep the ref from standing them up for his not doing shit on the ground, hope Anderson has a strategic brainfart, and - No, no, no. I won't go on, hah. You're wrong, sir.
Vera's too proud a fighter to lay and pray (which is what Henderson did for that first round, for the most part). And his opponent is too good a fighter to lose.
