So even though it starts off as a match up that should not be good for Matt he turns it into one that is. Get what I am saying.
So your saying that Veach will lose, because he cant adapt to a bad match-up?

How long does a successful fighter need good matchups to ensure success, before he can have a bad matchup and be able to adapt to still get a good success?

I'm trying to figure out if its all about the match and the standard skill set...or whether you ever factor in a fighters heart

Please, all it'll take is one good hissy fit & you'll start playing nice again!

I really think that Veach will lose because Edgar just the better fighter. I think that Edgar is one of the top 5 LW's in the UFC.

I think that depends on the fighter. Some people need one or two good match ups when they come to the UFC (or any time they move up to a larger org) before they are ready others can get thrown in deep water and be just fine.

I think that if fighters are close when it comes to skill then heart will become a deciding factor. I think that Jens beat BJ the first time simply because he wanted it more than BJ and I think that wanting something more comes down to heart.

Really...Jens blames his win on one of BJ Penns corner men
