UFC heavyweight Brandon Vera (8-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC), who will soon return to the organization after sitting out nearly a year due to issues with his former manager, has signed a new six-fight deal with the UFC.

IMO Vera could lose to almost everyone in the HW division right now. (yeah, I said it.)

i'm looking forward to it. he finally got towards the top and then didn't fight. the div has changed in the last year, but now we'll see how he really stacks up.

ya with such a deep division and such a long lay off i dont think Brandon will ever recover and will lose a couple of fight and never fight for a title

WOW i guess you guys never seen him fight?


this guy is a great figher,sure his not going be the champ in 4months but he does have the tools, he hits hard and is the fastest HW ive seen (yeah i said it) so i think he is going to do very well and it sounds like im not the only one because a six fight deal is a lot of fights so they most think he will do well to

I've seen him fight sub par fighters...They say he's going to fight AA or Sylvia and IMO he'll lose to both of them.

I've watched one of his fights, he did not look impressive. I think he will more than likely lose againest top contenders in HW.
They should have Vera vs Eddie Sanchez. Eddie is pretty fast for a heavyweight good striker and vera is quick and good striker. To see which fighter is ready to fight the top contenders

Yeah I'm not really all that excited about this news, like has been stated, he hasnt really fought any real competition, I have heard way too much hype about him, he should have taken his chance the first time he had it, the division is just too stacked now for him to really contend.

We all ready know that sanchez isnt ready to fight top contenders - He ran from mirko- if you want to give him another fighter to see who gets to fight top comp first it should be jake Obrian.

But i think he desersves to fight Big Tim or AA. since he was going to fight big Tim in march before all of his management issues. I am hoping for AA. so AA can demolish him.

WAR AA

I think he is one of those fighters who are a guys stepping stone. He should drop to 205, but he'll still get demolished by the top fighters in that division too.

I could see him getting picked off by Sylvia KO'ed by Arlovski, then dropping to 205 to fight Arona, who beats him on his debut lol... stepping stone (yeah, I said it haha. )

Vera is the ******* real deal and whoever thinks he is going to be a stepping stone or that him and EDDIE SANCHEZ would be a good fightreally needs to watch more mma or really just more brandon vera,im not calling noone out im just saying look up all his fights. here would be the outcome imo against top hw competition
Vera vs Gonzaga=Vera
Vera vs Coutur=Vera
Vera vs Crocop=Crocop
Vera vs Nog=i really dont know
Vera vs Arvloski=Arvloski
Vera vs Fedor=Fedor
Vera vs Hunt=Vera
Vera vs Hearring-Vera
So obviously in my eyes he is no stepping stone but thats just my opinion.

Fastest HW?! Obviously you never seen AA fight. Vera will get wrecked by every top fighter in the HW division except maybe Sylvia.
