Brandon Vera discusses Thiago Silva’s outstanding drug test on The Ryan Loco Show: (audio)
"If (Thiago Silva) does test positive for some kind of strength enhancing substance, it would make me feel a little bit better about myself."

"I roll with Phil Davis, I roll with Travis Browne. I roll with Junior dos Santos. I roll with the Nogueira brothers. ... I remember when I was underneath (Thiago Silva) and I was pushing him back and forth. I was thinking, ‘What the hell? Why is this guy so damn strong?’ And I remember thinking during the fight, ‘Yo, I gotta start lifting weights again.’ He was one of, if not the strongest dudes I ever rolled with in my life. Strong b******."

"If this thing comes back and you did do whatever you did and I make it back to the UFC, on your welcoming back party, I want to make sure I’m the one you get to fight. And I promise if you take me down, I’m going to get back up. Then I’m going to punish you on the feet just like I did while we were fighting, until you took me down. Then you gave it to me, but you won’t take me down next fight. So I’m glad you got to showboat. I’m glad you got to win, kind of. But I’m gonna see you again soon, bud."
