    Here's a prime example of the nuthugging.

    This guy guarantees a victory for Vera and he admittedly doesn't know that much about his opponent Silva.

    Killerinstinct said it all. He's definitely a good fighter at this stage in his career, and has potential to be someone great. But most of it is him just being able to talk people into believing in him, like Ortiz and Baroni and guys like that do. Not to say Ortiz or Baroni aren't great fighters either. Most of Vera's stuff is just winning impressively when he does fight, and talking the right game afterwards.

    I think Vera hypes himself up so high and is so confident that he got people to buy into the fact that he could become HW and LHW champ.He has great potential ,but I think the talks of him becoming champ are definately premature.

    I agree, but I dont think Vera will beat Silva.. I think Vera has a bright future but I think he is going to be overwhelmed by Silva

    And without reason. I could see a fan base, but a whole bandwagon? The Scherner fight wasn't all that impressive in my opinion. Eilers was, but still that doesn't warrant people questioning if Liddell can hang with Vera, and people forecasting him to win both the HW and LHW titles just because that's something he's mentioned himself.

Silva is the real deal, and this fight is a LOT closer than the odds make it out to be. In all actuality, I'll probably pick Vera when I do my pre-UFC 60 column for the website, but still no way is it that big a landslide like the odds and fans/"insiders" picks would lead you to believe.
    I really hope Silva wins. The bandwagon must be haulted for the time being. It's getting ridiculous.

    Thanks Matt. I've got so many people threatening my life because I picked Silva over Vera. Man the Vera bandwagon is huge.
