If he beats Rua and Jones defeats Henderson, Vera believes he now has the proper mindset to be successful against the champ.

“The very first time I fought Jon Jones, I thought he was just some young punk and I didn't respect him at all. I got what I deserved,” recounted Vera. “If and when I do get a chance to fight Mr. Jones again, I promise he'll have my full and undivided attention.”

Of course, all the talk about title shots and winning the lottery are for not if Vera doesn’t take advantage of the opportunity laid at his feet.

“This opportunity, it's a dream come true and makes everything okay, and I'm taking full advantage of it. I've never been so confident, so sure ever in my life.”

I put Vera in the same category as Tito Ortiz of the past few years.. just shut up and go away. I've seen this dude beat up way too many times for the UFC to be wasting time still trying to hype him. And these guys actually believe the hype even after all the beatings it's crazy.

at least he didnt say "this is a new improved version of me. ill be different and better than you've ever seen me before. the guys at the gym convinced me to rededicate myself" and then eek out a split decision against Eliot Marshall. God help him had Thiago Silva had a second chance...we may have seen our first death in the ufc...

Funny considering Vera had an interview days before the Jones fight where Vera said he had studied Jones, said Jones had no holes in his game, and said Jones was coming to finish.

Now he's saying he thought he was just some young punk and didn't take the fight serious?

Suuuuuure.

jushintiger - Do you think that Vera kicks himself everyday for not sticking with Rob Kaman?

With Kaman = undefeated
Without Kaman = 4-6

Pay the man some money. You might have a chance.

 Ahhh I see someone gets it..... Ever since Rob Kaman and him split his career = stalled.
