Brandon Vera cut by the UFC

I've read the news on MMA Mania and they are quoting another source.

Quote:
Fighters face adversity at any given event due to the nature of their chosen endeavor, but in the case of calamity attached to Brandon Vera’s performance against Thiago Silva last weekend at UFC 125 there’s no doubting “The Truth” hurts. Vera, once viewed as being a double-divisional title-contender, was not only soundly beaten by his Brazilian adversary but also suffered a horrific broken nose in the process in addition to an embarrassing open-handed drumming from Silva reminiscent of Randy Couture spanking Tito Ortiz at UFC 44.

Were those things not enough, according to a source near the situation, Five Ounces of Pain has learned the lanky light heavyweight also received a pink-slip from the UFC as a result of the loss.

Vera started his career out with an 8-0 record, including a severe beatdown of former heavyweight champ Frank Mir, but has gone 3-6 since an eleven-month break from competition in 2006-2007 due to a contract dispute. His New Year’s Day defeat marked the affable Californian’s third consecutive stumble in the Octagon after compiling back-to-back wins over Krzysztof Soszynski and Mike Patt in previous bouts.

However, regardless of his recent record, Vera’s newfound status as a free agent should be brief as he is well-liked by fans and possesses a well-rounded set of skills. Also notable is the fact his fight against Silva came after nearly a nine-month absence from the ring due to having suffered facial fractures in March action against Jon Jones. He holds an 11-6 overall record in his career with wins over Soszynski, Mir, and Mike Whitehead.

Can't say i'm surprised.
Bellator for him imo.
In SF he would just lose like he does now!

Brandon Vera Cut

My coach at Lucha Libre wrestling just told me that Brandon Vera was cut in addition to McKee... Mckee didn't deserve it but brandon vera needs to go to retool.

They also cut McKee... I can understand why Vera was cut, but McKee only had one fight and it was a close one.

I agree with both cuts. Vera has not been very good as of late and IMO McKee was just brought in so Dana could shut him up about giving him a chance and watching him get tooled. So I am not surprised about either cut.

Yeah this is no surprise at all. It was time for Vera to take a break from the UFC. Maybe he can drop down in comp and get back to his roots

Mckee only got his chance in the UFC by accusing them of racism, and then put on the dullest fight of the night by far and lost... Easy decision for Dana.

Vera had to be cut really. Dunno what to say he should do next? His MT is very god and his BJJ is solid so should be able to get some wins on the Indies.
