    He looked pretty good fighting about a year ago, but I haven't heard anything about him since. Contract dispute? Injury?

    It's a damn shame. I really wanted to see him fight Tim, but I guess we are all going to have to wait for the afterlife to see that dream fulfilled.

    He will be fighting Timmaaayy shortly. He did have a contract dispute but has since fired his former management and inked a new deal with the UFC.

    Why do you have to start rumors like that?

    Sad ending for someone with such a bright future.

    I hear they're going to have a memorial in his honor at the Silva-Franklin rematch in Cincinnati.

    I'm going to be an emotional wreck for that.
    Might want to check the ufc.com site to see what they have planned for that event. Before the main event his t-girl fiancee from Thailand is going to sing their favorite song in the octagon.

    Word has it that they will be serving Pancit and Lumpia.

    World also has it that people all over Cincinnati have been heard asking "What the fuck is Pancit and Lumpia?"

    Vera was in Thailand recently to train and support his wife Kerri who was fighting in Thailand (oxygen network's fight girls) she won via headkick KO.

    He recently opened a gym Alliance MMA or something similar, which he runs and trains in, that is inspired by randy's gym in vegas.

    He is still being trained by Rob Kaman and Lloyd Irvin but has left city boxing due to a dispute with his ex-manager about his negotiations with the UFC. apparently the manager was offered a UFC deal but was holding out for more money and never notified Brandon. thus a stalemate in negotiations and he was put on the sidelines. but he has signed a new contract with the UFC now and his next scheduled bout is against Tim Sylvia near the end of the year.

    We all liked Vera, and are trying to have a frank discussion about the Memorial at the Cincin UFC. Why do you have to come in here and make stuff up? That ain't right.
