Quote of the Day 2: Brandon Vera Slams Dan Miragliotta

"Justifiable?...That shouldn't even be in that sentence, man. That was an (expletive) (expletive) call. I was talking, having a conversation with the referee, telling him I'm OK, and then he stops the fight. I wanted to know what I could have said. 'I'm fine?' 'Everything is spectacular?' What else was I supposed to say to the referee? Justifiable? That word should not be used in conjunction with that fight, ever."

...

"I watched the Kimbo fight and thought, 'Man, that ref sucks. I hope I don't get him in my fight.' Usually in the locker room the referee will come to you to go through the rules. I didn't see him until I was in the Octagon, and then it was too late."

-- Brandon Vera, still heated after the controversial stoppage loss to Fabricio Werdum at UFC 85. Vera has the opportunity to redeem himself at light heavyweight on July 19th as he takes on former IFL standout Reese Andy at "UFC: Silva vs. Irvin".
