Brandon "The Truth" Vera Returns..

It's about time:

The Truth hurts. Just ask those who have ever stepped into the Octagon<sup>TM</sup> with rising heavyweight star Brandon "The Truth" Vera, who, after a prolonged absence due to managerial issues, will finally return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) organization to put his perfect record on the line as he resumes his chase for the World Heavyweight Championship. Dana White, UFC President, who was pleased to make the announcement of Vera's return today, expects the Californian to be back in action as soon as October of this year.

"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.
