If you shot a time-lapse picture of Brandon Vera on the day the UFC released him from his contract, you would see him sitting on the couch, still, as the sun rose and set in the horizon.

Sure, Vera (11-6 MMA, 7-6 UFC) had lost before – several times, in fact, for a variety of reasons. But hearing word that he would no longer work for the world's biggest fight promotion – that he was out of a job – was particularly devastating.

Steroids or not I still think Vera deserved to be cut and needs to win a big fight or two.

"I promised some hardcore fans the heavyweight belt and the light-heavyweight belt. I remember when he made this promise. I've been waiting along time and will probably be waiting even longer. I don't see it.

I love this guy. It kills me to know he's not the fighter he once was.
Although i still think he won the fight against Couture.
