If Brandon Vera wants a blueprint for countering guys who have unusual angles, wild attacks, unpredictable moves and great athleticism, just re-watch Mike Brown taking Urijah Faber's belt at their first meeting. Stay solid, and punch hard when there's an opening.

Okay, Cruz certainly won the first two rounds, but the nut-embrace going on for him is still a little silly. He was ten minutes into a 25 minute fight. I've seen plenty of fights where one guy comes out on fire and ends up losing. And Bowles didn't break his hand punching air, he broke it smacking Cruz upside the head. While I think Bowles may have continued, it was their call. But everyone out in the blagosfeer yakking about how dominant Cruz was...well, that was 40% of the fight. I'd like to see an immediate rematch when Bowles' hand is healed.
