UFC on Fox 4: Shogun vs Vera Live Odds

UFC on FOX 4: Shogun Rua vs. Vera was a mixed martial arts event to be held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on August 4, 2012 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

An undisclosed injury to Chad Griggs forced him to be pulled from his bout with Phil Davis. Griggs was replaced by Wagner Prado. In addition an injured Pablo Garza was replaced by Rani Yahya and Terry Etim by Jamie Varner.

Brandon Vera was supposed to fold in the presence of Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. At least, that's what most thought, given the lopsided odds that had Rua favored by as much as 5-to-1 by the time the UFC on FOX 4 main event went off.

It wasn't quite so easy for Rua. In fact, it wasn't easy at all. Vera came to battle, and put a scare in Rua for three-and-a-half rounds, until Rua could finally put him away with a fourth-round knockout.

In the co-main event, Ryan Bader couldn't navigate the distance necessary to hit Machida, and certainly couldn't get close enough to initiate a takedown. Faced with that quandary, Bader chose to take the direct path and rush him.

Lyoto Machida vs Ryan Bader:

Round 2: Bader still unable to close the distance on Machida, who keeps the wrestler at range with speedy counterpunching and kicks. One attempt from Bader to rush inside gives Machida the opportunity he needs: a short right hand sends Bader toward the ground, and two follow-up punches from Machida turn out the lights. Lyoto Machida scores the knockout at 1:32 of the second round.

Mauricio Rua vs Brandon Vera:

Round 4: Rua’s knees are scoring better, and Vera is unable to do much damage when he grabs the Thai plum.

Vera cracks Rua with a pair of level elbows, but Rua gives him some damage right back with an uppercut. Rua’s just grinding Vera into the fence now as the crowd begins to boo.

Left hook, right hook, one-two from Shogun and Vera hits the deck, belly-down. Rua follows him down and drops another pair of hard right hands on his exhausted opponent, and that’s a wrap. Herb Dean steps in to wave this one off, giving Mauricio Rua the TKO win at 4:09 of the fourth round.
