"Brandon Vera is a young, well-rounded, exciting heavyweight who finishes fights in exciting fashion," said Dana White, UFC President. "I think he brings a lot to the heavyweight mix, and I see him in a position to fight for the heavyweight title in 2008."
Brandon "The Truth" Vera was undefeated and considered a top contender in the heavyweight division before a contract dispute with former management took him out of action. Now, almost a year later, the issue has been resolved, Vera is under new management and is anxious to start fighting again.
"I'm so excited to be back in the UFC, I have no words to describe the feeling," said Vera."
I cannot possibly tell you how exciting this is. The UFC heavyweight division - once the laughing stock of mixed martial arts - is now a shark tank. Vera adds such an interesting twist to the mix with his age, style, and undefeated record. This is so entertaining.
