Brandon Vera has the loftiest goal imaginable for an MMA fighter, and even if you don't think he can do it, he's not afraid to say it publicly: Vera wants to hold the UFC heavyweight belt and the UFC light heavyweight belt simultaneously. That's the goal that drives him.

Never mind that Vera has never even been the No. 1 contender for either title, Vera insists that he can do it. But in the mean time, he's just focused on beating Krzysztof Soszynski, the man who will be on the other side of the Octagon from Vera on August 29 at UFC 102. In an interview with FanHouse, Vera discussed the upcoming fight and his long-term plans in the sport. The full interview is below.
