Log in to Reply SEAN_VANCE August 7, 2012 Amazing fight…I feel bad for Vera, he gave it all and he went out in a stretcher basically….but much respect… I wish everyone fought like this in the UFC Log in to Reply coutura August 7, 2012 joe rogan thinks practice and sparting is the same as fighting when a fighters gets hit as hard as brandom took those shots its not easy to think joe rogan and golberg are trash Log in to Reply glassjoe August 7, 2012 Great Fight!!! Vera was much better than I expected. Log in to Reply RUGBURN August 7, 2012 GREAT FIGHT!! You guys are correct about Rogan and White. What really pissed me off was that Dana told Shogun indirectly that his performance wasn’t impressive. If you ask me that was fight to the death!! Hats off to both fighters and its ashame that Vera is going to get the short end of the stick. Shogun is ready for Jones and if he gets his opportunity he will take back the crown!!! Log in to Reply master blaster August 7, 2012 first well done to vera even tho he lost won my respect..shogun has not been the same since he beat machida then got injured tires to easily no chance against jones or machida at this moment… Log in to Reply Rio_Warrior August 7, 2012 Wheres your cardio Rua? JJ will kick your ass again if you show like this in an eventual rematch. Log in to Reply Kimura August 7, 2012 ^^^ both of those anti-rogan comments are stupid as hell because he’s a black belt in bjj speaking on what someone who is not a black belt should have done, just like what these guys hear in the gym to get to where joe rogan is everyday. second of all he DOES know the difference between sparring and fighting because he’s been in martial arts since a small child and won gold medals in numerous tae kwon do and even did some competing in kickboxing, does that not mean he knows exactly what a person is feeling like when getting hit? smh im sad that this is the type of people that surround me everyday. Log in to Reply ultimate fighter August 7, 2012 i thought vera was going to make a serious run at the title, and obviously get his nose doubled smooshed by jones. but an excellent fight anyway, it look like he gave up several times, only to comeback firing bombs. too bad this has cemented him as a jardine type gatekeeper. Log in to Reply dave August 7, 2012 those two guys took a huge amount of punishments. and Dana says shogun came to just win? are you f kidding me? he was sort of gassed but the takes huge amount of punishments and he still comes forward to fight and win. Respect to Vera he tried his best! didn’t hold back at all. Much respect to both fighters. they deserve huge bonuses. Log in to Reply kaution35 August 7, 2012 Wonder if Vera would fair better at 185? He fought at heavyweight but honestly…the guy doesnt look like he’s a big 205. Plus he tends to get man handled by bigger 205ers. Log in to Reply Joe Dog August 7, 2012 Thanks for posting these fights. I looked everywhere but could only find fight highlights with Chael Sonnen commentating (for Fox). Much appreciated! Thank you. Log in to Reply Danby August 7, 2012 Whats with shoguns cardio anyways. I think hes worse then bj penn. He NEVER seems to get in better shape match after match. Does he just not like cardio or something? Log in to Reply anderson cheats August 7, 2012 Shogun got the W but he is not the force he used to be. Log in to Reply skifri3 August 7, 2012 Judging from this appearance… it looks like Shogun wouldn’t fare any better than he did the first time against JJ… maybe even worse than last time. Welcome back Bruno! Log in to Reply Krispy Kreme August 7, 2012 Shogun was throwing heat and serious power in the 4th round! That is cardio, bouncing around and jogging is not cardio, so what if he was breathing heavy. Log in to Reply coleSTain August 7, 2012 Bruno you are the ****in man, thanks so much for posting. Just thought you would not because they were a free card. Cheers hope you had good travels! Log in to Reply wookie August 7, 2012 what more do you want from shogun? he peaked in ’05 or so. he is old beyond his years, as is often the case when guys reach the top of the heap in their early 20’s. give the man some trt to bring him back. vera hasn’t looked this tough in years. i dont need to see him get a title shot, but he silenced his critics. Log in to Reply Vin August 7, 2012 This fight really showed how tough these athletes are.Could you imagine A Rod digging this deep? Must be rough for Vera giving so much to come up short. Log in to Reply gamblore August 7, 2012 shogun was injured. Big time shoulder issue, which would explain him taking Vera down.. Log in to Reply jhu August 7, 2012 LOL reason Dana said shogun performance is bad is probably because he was counting vera out he was expect shogun to KO vera first round? so the fight didn’t go the way he want to go and he say he didnt put in his heart. Log in to Reply Kidjonny1 August 7, 2012 Thx for posting the fight Bruno. Hope you are having fun in Europe. 😀 Log in to Reply facephucke August 7, 2012 champoinship retirement fight, Dana white vs Bob Sap..winner gets Kimbos mom for a weekend. Log in to Reply TheKungFuLowKick August 7, 2012 Shogun gets injured so much he doesn’t have tim to train his cardio.Almost each fights he gets surgery. Log in to Reply iWay August 7, 2012 vera nor jones would have much of a chance against jones. looks like machida vs jones is the most interesting match up. i dont think hendo will take jones. Log in to Reply casemax August 8, 2012 Shogun’s cardio is lacking a bit probably due to his previous knee injuries, guessing he doesn’t run. Pool and biking could fix that. He is still a badass in my book always a pleasure to watch. Log in to Reply RRM August 8, 2012 WHat a scrap! Log in to Reply Danby August 8, 2012 If hes always injured then that explains it. He needs to get healthier to have a chance with jones. The only reason he did so well this time is because Brandon tired out quite quickly too. Jon Jones wont tire out. Hes gotta do something about his stamina and these injuries. Find a new doctor or train differently. Something. If the shogun that fought machida both times were to fight Jones, he might actually win. I think Jon Jones has a weakness against leg kicks. Log in to Reply cool August 8, 2012 Vera is just not competitive anymore. He was beat by a notable name…but not a fighter near his best and still lost. He claimed he gave his all. Well time to pack it up then. When your best is being beat by someone on their bad day, you need to find another career. For the record you didn’t push the pase. Rua pushed you Log in to Reply steamer August 8, 2012 very entertaining fight. both guys did a good job. happy I got to see this one Log in to Reply PitfighterZ August 8, 2012 This fight was fun for the very opposite reasons that the Machida v. Bader was fun! Machida was pure precision and got a clean KO after making Bader look like he never fought in his life. Shogun and Vera went at it a bit sloppy and tired, but with pure heart and determination. Crazy stuff! Gotta love MMA! Log in to Reply Rugburn August 9, 2012 I don’t see how Dana came up with the stupid idea that based on their performance the winner gets Bones. Its like comparing apples to oranges. If you asked me, I think Machida wouldn’t have did so good vs Vera. As matter of fact I think Vera could’ve won. Vera and Bader are two different beasts. Vera’s strength is standup and Bader’s is wrestling. The next fight rather we like it or not should be Shogun vs Machida 3. That way we leave no doubt on who is ready for Bones or Hendo!!!
