Brandon Vera's Questionable Future

30247kn3_medium

Brandon Vera put in a solid performance last night against Keith Jardine, but the decision against him was valid, and he has now lost three of his last four fights, with one win coming against middling competition in Reese Andy.

People talk a lot about the "old" Brandon Vera, but I don't buy it.  The old Brandon Vera never fought guys like Tim Sylvia, Fabricio Werdum, and Keith Jardine.  He just has not been able to put things together against high-end talent.

This isn't to say he has no future.  It's just that he is not an elite fighter right now, and would be well served to spend a few months fighting low level guys to regain his confidence and hone his skills in preparation for another run at the top.

Given his popularity in the Philippines, he will not be cut, but he needs to put some wins together in a hurry to salvage his status as a future star.
