Tweet of the Day: Brandon Vera calls out Brian Stann for UFC 163 announcing bias

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

UFC fighter Brandon Vera was not impressed with Brian Stann's color commentary during the UFC 163 co-main event bout featuring Vera's teammate Phil Davis.

It should never come as a huge surprise when a teammate defends one of his own, even in an individual sport like MMA. But it seems that Brandon Vera may have taken it a little further than most would when it came to his assessment of Brian Stann's work as color commentator at UFC 163. Vera, who is a teammate of Phil Davis at Alliance MMA, was not impressed with Stann's comments during Mr. Wonderful's bout with Lyoto Machida. He took to twitter to voice his opinion on the situation:

@philmrwonderful super awesome job boss...!!!!! U are the man!!! Fuck you @brianstann learn how to be an unbiased commentator bitch. Don't ‪#‎hate‬ cuz he beat Ur ass too!!!

The last part is clearly a reference to Davis' win over Stann back in 2010, which served as Davis' first fight in the UFC. Personally I didn't find Stann's analysis to be all that biased at all, though Vera isn't the only person to bring it up. I just thought he called the fight the way I saw it - as a clear Machida victory. But you're never going to please everyone I guess.

Vera will return to the octagon as a heavyweight when he meets Ben Rothwell at UFC 164 on August 31st.
