    Default Brandon Vera Stronger, Happier Heading Into His Big Heavyweight Return

    http://www.fightline.com/fl/news/201.../brandon-vera/

    The Truth speaks to Fight Now TV on how he feels now that he's not having to maintain his weight at 205lbs:

    "I'm training a lot, eating more. Holy s---t, it's been so nice to eat! Training is fun again, I don't come in tired, all my training partners say I feel stronger. I f-----g hate cutting weight man. I hate it. I absolutely hate it."

    I can't see Vera having much success against the animals that rule the HW division now. He just doesn't possess the power to compete IMO.

    Would like to see a rematch with Frank.

    I think this incarnation of Mir would most likely beat him pretty badly.

    For Vera's frame,he really shouldn't have to cut much weight to make 205, it's just another example of a fighter not staying in shape between fights. That's why GSP is so amazing, he is in fighting shape 24/7,365, and so should Vera, but he is pretty lazy, same with Jones actually.

    In Jones' defense, you can tell his body is meant to carry more mass than he does. You can look at his brothers and tell that.

    We'll see at the weighins but the rumors are the Vera is looking particularly huge. He may not be as naturally thin as folks are saying; not sure he ever embraced a rigid strength and conditioning program prior either.

    I like Rothwell, but if he comes out striking a la TRex like he did against GG, Vera could easily win this.

    At this point I really don't care whether the former futre multi-division champ fights. He has been refocues and rejuvenated way too many points in his career so far.
