Despite two straight losses in the UFC, Brandon Vera (8-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) is still ready to take on the best in the world -- in two weight classes.

After a Vera loss to heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum in controversial fashion at June's UFC 85, critics again claimed that Vera was too small for the heavyweight division and needed to cut weight and compete at 205 pounds. In less than two weeks, Vera will do exactly that, against IFL standout Reese Andy (7-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 14.

But don't expect Vera to stay there for long.

Hopefully he comes back better and gets some wins in 205. Hes always stated that he wants to hold the Heavyweight and Light Heavy belts at the same time, but who doesnt want to hold 2 belts at the same time these days? Good luck to him in 205 tho.

He has a hard enough time competing in just one weight class. LHW is stacked, but he's too small for HW. Kind of between a rock and a hard place. Elite XC anyone?
