In what’s on paper one of the more lopsided main events in recent history, Shogun Rua will fight Brandon Vera to secure a Championship shot.
Dana White has recently come out and said the winner of this fight will next contend for the Championship.
Don’t be fooled. That’s just Dana’s way of trying to sell a fight.
If Brandon Vera somehow wins this one, there’s no way he’ll be next to fight for the Championship. This is Dana’s way of saying that they have full confidence in Shogun Rua to not only win against Vera, but to make it look easy.
This is a fight, however, and in the Octagon, anything can happen.
So let’s take a look at this fight and see who truly holds the advantage on paper going in.
