    good luck brandon vera in retirement. vera didn't look the same since coming back from 1 year of inactivity. it couldn't even put randy couture to sleep. jon jones will knock vera out.

    well it didn't get any easier for brandon, i like this match up better i didn't think lil nog should have been fighting brandon to begin with and this is a great fight for jones a better name and step up in comp that he should be able to handle.

    This fight will certainly tell as to where my boy Brandon will be after March. He will either get beat and be tossed or win and rise the ranks again. I am with you Derek, Brandon was something else when he first came into the picture and then with the 1 year layoff something happened. He just hasn't been the same Vera as he once was. But I still stand behind one of my favorites…Go Brandon!
