SwiftSpear Posted August 30, 2009 Report Share Posted August 30, 2009 I really really loved this fight, it showcased some AMAZING talent in the UFC light heavyweight division and I think both guys can really take this match as a feather in their cap. Vera gets another win over a tough tough opponent, and does so while making me wonder the whole time what a fight with him vs Machida would look like, and Krystof sticks in there punch for punch against a guy who is better than him at MMA at every aspect of the game. If you didn't think Krystof was tough before, you have to think so now after seeing him eat all the combos, leg kicks, and body kicks Vera threw at him. Those were the same kicks that stopped Vera's last opponent in the first round remember. The other fights on this card were a bit less compelling to me anyways. You have a grind out war that really mostly just confirmed that Randy is actually finally past his prime, you have 2 flash knockouts in Greg Jackson camp fights, one in thier favor and one against, which while great to see, like most flash knock outs, really don't tell you alot about either sets of fighters, and then you have a Chris Leben fight that goes EXACTLY as expected and further proves leben is probably the least technical fighter in MMA. Oh and there was a flash KO on the undercard too, yay! Anyways, it was a decent card overall, but Vera vs Krystoff is the fight that made this card special to me.
