    yeah, so technically he never turned it down, that damn Vera is trying to besmirch Soko's name.

    The story is still misleading, they did not offer the fight in the normal regards. They "asked" Thierry if he would fight Vera-He said Yes-saying he would fight anyone (not in the article) then the word about fighting in July sparked and Thierry was like "Yah I will figh thim but not in July, you just told me about the possiblility." THUS never being offered the fight in regards to contracts and the "normal" way.
    They only spoke about the possiblity.
    This story is not that accurate-I am sticking to my first post about the whole thing being BS.

    Ah I dont think it will have too much negative affect. Sok has jumped into the fire and fought the top guys despite having limited experience, he has recently challenged Shogun so anyone who thinks he is scared would be foolish.

    A variety of guys turned down fights on this card (including Vera) and I think most of them were due to lack of prep time.

    Exactly.. he calls them out for not having enough prep time so they decline and he did the same shit with Machida.. lol Okay Brandon.. whatever makes you sleep at night.
