    Some good Mid level Heavyweight matchups flying under the radar.

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Tue Jun 11, 2013 4:42 pm

    Vera vs Rothwell August
    Barry vs Jordan This weekend
    Miocic vs Nelson This weekend
    Schaub vs Meathead July
    Gonzaga vs Herman July

    Who are you all backing and who do you want to see fight next.

    I think Vera is going to beat Rothwell, Vera has been Hot and Cold his whole career but when he turns it on he is a great fighter and Id wonder at his age if Heavyweight will be a more comfortable weight class, he has the height and length to not be out of place. Big Ben exactly what it says on the tin, Big. Vera looked easily taken down a few times by fighers than can overpower him like Thiago Silva and Werudm off the top of my head but people credit him for having excelent Greco, Couture really had a hard time doing much but stalling him, I think the big test will be if he is strong enough to stop himself getting pushed around at Hw. My bet is that his speed carries up well again and he choppes Big Ben apart with Kicks and Knees standing. Vera 2nd round KO

    I have visions of Barry blitzing forward and scoring a great KO but then my head tells me Jordan has a plan B to use his 260 odd pounds and take Barry down. After he gets tagged I see this hapening, possible a GnP TKO but Ill go for Jordan UD

    Nelson isnt really mid level, Sherdoggers talk about his title shot every week... Im sticking my neck out and calling for Miocic to win. Nelson is like Hendo he is great and all that but he is fighting bigger guys. He isnt taking Miocic down easily id say and when Roy doesnt have the threat of the takedown looming fighters can start outstriking him when the big right isnt landing. I think this weekend he right Hand isnt going to find a home and we will see Roy pushed back by a Genuine Hw guy with the wrestling to keep him off. Miocic UD

    Schaub KO's Meathead, Big Ol nasty KO coming I reckon! Im really looking forward to this, think they were on the same series of TUF? Different teams were they or the same? Just style wise I like this, I love watching both fight really and their styles are going to make for a great fight. I see Meathead trying to stay light on his feet and move in and out but I think Schaub has good enough hands to get his rythem and catch Meathead moving in. Schaib KO 1st.

    Gonzaga will win, its hard to Pick Herman after 3 straight losses. I see Gonzaga plowing into him taking him down and Subbing him after trying to test the waters as a striker for a round and being to slow. Gonzaga Sub 2nd.

    ----------------------------------------------

    For Vera I want him to fight Nog if he doesnt retire (Which I dont think he will) Ive always wanted to see Vera fight either of the Nog brothers. Yes they are probabally still levels apart but if Nog needs a step down Vera would put on a FOTN with him id say.

    Jordan should fight Duffee if he isnt matched up by then.

    Miocic should fight Bigfoot, he isnt matched up and hasnt a sniff of gettig near the title as long as Cain holds it. Test a young up and comer against a title contender unlikely ever to get back again.

    Schaub should fight Hunt.

    Gonzaga should fight Bigfoot too! Ive always called it but if not he should get Struve, they would put on a hell of a scrap I think both on the ground and standing.

    I hope Gonzaga gets the W, hopefully subbing him.

    Mitrione v Schaub...... I couldn't care less, can't stand either of them.

    I agree with the Barry fight although I'd like Barry to get a KO win

    I've always thought Vera was a natural HW, sure, Sylvia stole his sole a bit and he was ripped right off by poor judging in the Couture fight. I think one good, impressive win and Vera will get his confidence back

    Good showing by Miocic, He looked a level above Nelson. If not Bigfoot I think although it is a step down rematching Struve would be a good Idea.

    Jordan looked good, Dropped Barry standing and finished early. Also dropped a bit of Bulk, he was about 10-15lbs heavier at least last time he fought I think. Bring on Duffman, One of these guys might be able to break into the top 10.
