The Truth took us back to the days of beautiful soccer kicks in this one.... I'm just glad he's not fighting juiced up oppenents anymore...

Dayummm! wow.

that last one was definitely to the back of the head/neck, but the fight was pretty much over either way.

A healthy and aggressive Brandon Vera... where have you been all these years?? We saw some of that in the Shogun fight....

When he pulls the trigger he's a beast.... problem is that he doesn't do it nearly enough..

He's looking pretty damn big!

Im assuming shots to the back of the head are allowed in OneFC? Or just soccer kicks to the back of the head? Either way, a thumbs up from me.

Vera always had the potential and skill but never the mental fortitude.
He always folded at the slightest bit of resistance. I honestly believe that if Vera and Marquardt weren't as mentally weak as they were that they would still to this day be world champions, but you have to have game between your ears and neither of these guys did.

OneFC is the best for rules now, I hope they find a way to be more relevant and professional.

There was a day when small orgs like this could never compete with a UFC card but now that they watered down their events so much these smaller shows can be more competitive, maybe thats a good thing for MMA maybe not, time will tell.

Good post amigo. I definitely like the throwback style of OneFC, reminds me of Pride a bit and the fights I've seen haven't been boring. I doubt they can compete globally but they won't be hurting for a while, and Rich helping out can only make them better.

I really hope they carve their base and are around for a while.... I need orgs like OneFC, WSOF, and Bellator... the smaller shows have some of my favorite fights and fighters.

Honestly I have to disagree at least somewhat. I think his carreer was handled somewhat badly towards the end of his UFC run by the brass.

Let's look at his last 5 UFC fights.

Jon Jones - Loss- Who hasn't lost to Bones???

Ben Rothwell - Loss- Ben Rothwell tested positive for steroids directly after that fight and Brandon banged well into the 3rd round at HW.

Shogun Rua - Loss - potential fight of the year. If you have not see the Shogun/Vera fight PLEASE watch it!! It was most definitely a treat. They went to WAR.

Elliot Marshall - Win - Brandon took it unanimously.

Thiago Silva - Loss - Thiago Silva tested positive for steroids directly after the win over Vera.

Honestly Vera deserved another fight. That's a patch job at best taking under consideration those losses are to 2 steroid abusers one was FOTY damn near, and one is to the GOAT LHW champion.

His record looks bad until you take under consideration the details of it.

I think the problem with Vera is that at the time he dominated in the heavyweight division the talent pool was EXTREMELY thin. As a result he never tested himself before facing solid vets. Same with light heavyweight and of course the end of his UFC run is self explanatory as mentioned above.
