Vera against Jones on UFC Live
UFC Live is going to be an exciting fight card featuring a couple of big-time light heavyweights in Brandon “The Truth” Vera and Jon “Bones” Jones.
Two weeks ago, I had Vera winning this fight by a decision. But that was based on the fact that I like Vera as a fighter and his trainer Lloyd Irvin is a local guy that has done a lot for MMA.
Now, however, I have moved pass my personal feelings.
Jon Jones is a beast. He should still be undefeated and in line for a title shot. No one throws a spinning back fist and a spinning elbow like Jones. It’s one of the most exciting and electrifying strikes in MMA.
Also fighting on the card are heavyweights Junior Dos Santos against Gabriel Gonzaga, and Cheick Kongo, who is taking on Paul Buentello.
Junior Dos Santos is going to have his hands full with Gabriel Gonzaga in this match. Gonzaga is going to use his kicking to win this fight. My prediction is a second-round TKO by Gonzaga.
Which Cheick Kongo is going to show up is the big question? He has the ability to take Buentello out in the first round or lose by a decision. So, I’m going with Paul Buentello by a close decision -- just my gut feeling.
Also on the card are middleweights Alessio Sakara against “The Sandman” James Irvin.
Two fighters that are coming off losses are lightweights Clay “The Carpenter” Guida and Shannon Gugerty. How can you not like Guida's motor? That guy brings it every time.Which fighter are you looking forward to seeing on the card?
