UFN 21:Vera vs Jones


K22UFC

Recommended Posts

Ultimate Fight Night 21 is in my opinion probably the best ever UFN card. The main event is a great match between Brandon Vera and Jon Jones. The co-main event is another great match between Clay Guida and Sean Sherk. Anthony Johnson and Brendan Schaub both have matches on this card and there is also a match between Spencer Fisher and Duane Ludwig which will be a stand-up war. This event wil take place on March 21st on a Sunday.

 

Main Card

Brandon Vera vs Jon Jones

Clay Guida vs Sean Sherk

Anthony Johnson vs John Howard

Spencer Fisher vs Duane Ludwig

Brendan Schaub vs Chase Gormley

 

What do you think of this card?

awesome card for 1st time on versus, however I wouldn't hold my breath for A. Johnson fight (making weight) and if I was Howard I would not take the fight unless he makes weight.

 

I'm really looking forward to Fisher vs Ludwig, Guida vs. Sherk, and Vera vs. Jones

 

As for best Fight Night card ever, I'm sticking with Florian vs. Lauzon (forgot the #) but it was from CO as well.

Ya, the Florian vs Lauzon card was sick but I think this one could be better because of the main event. I wonder will it be 2 or 3 hours long with the 5 main card matches compared to the normal 4.

i wonder if this poll will be different from the other 3 on this fight.... *cough* SEARCH!!

 

Big deal if theres other polls the same. Why dont you go cry about it. There was no other ones on the front page untill you decided to bring back your one from like two weeks ago. This thread was about the whole card in general but I decided to put up the poll for the main event. You dont have to vote on it if you dont want to.

Vera is gonna get KTFO via some kind of crazy punch/kick combo

 

Ya, Jones is very dangerous with his unorthodox striking but so is Vera who has alot more experience and he looked very good against Couture. He had great takedown defence and great striking. The clinch battle will be very interesting with Veras muay thai and Jones greco-roman wrestling and great takedowns. Its a very hard fight to call. I think Jones will win by decision but it will be a great fight.

Really pumped for this and this is the best fight night card to date. I have Jones for the win but I don't think he will walk through Vera like he did Hamill... But I said Hamill was going to be a tough fight for him and that proved to be not the case. Shows you what I know.

 

That's what's great about MMA anything can happen and everybody can surprise or dissapoint you. Judges included.

i think this fight is unpredictable. Jones has not fought anyone of Veras caliber, but he seems promising. If Jones get past Vera, he should fight the winner of Coleman/Cotoure for a title shot.

If Vera finishes Jones, we'll know Jones has a lot of work to do.

Ya, I agree with that. A Couture fight would be a great opportunity for Jones. If he won he would become a huge name.

Ya, I get your point but if this was the case then Keith Jardine, Josh Koscheck, Florian, Ben Saunders, Maynard, Bonnar and alot of other good fighters that were on the show wouldnt be in the UFC. I think that the UFC is right to give some fighters that didnt win the show a chance and if they do bad then they can get released.

yeah. i bet itll be shown tho and it will motivate clay to do well

 

Ya, it will probably be shown unless most of the fights go to the decision but I think that there will be alot of finishes with Johnson, Dos Santos and Kongo v Buentello on the card. Hopefully Guida can get the badly needed win.

Yeah cause it was COUTURE he looked so good. Veras "great" stirking will have no benefit against Jones unorthodox striking and unorthodox movement, once vera swings Jones will already have countered with a spinning back fist. KO via first round for Jones.
