Brandon Vera is Taking His Talents to the Unemployment Office
MMA expert Turd Ferguson checks-in with a take on Brandon “The Truth” Vera.
UFC President Dana White doesn’t believe in stimulus planning (high-fives John Boehner, googles “John Boner”). Therefore, if you don’t bring daddy his money, then you best be on a stroll fah good, ya dig!? (tips hat with cane, walks away with a limp).
After suffering his loss (and a nose fracture) to Thiago Silva at UFC 125, Brandon “The Truth” Vera is facing the harsh reality that his window in UFC might be closing.
Vera, once heralded as one of the top up-and-coming fighters, has limped to a 3-6 record; including 0-3 in his last three fights. Throw in the fact that he’s 33 years-old and the phrase “up-and-comer” no longer fits; kinda like a freshman trying on pants after his first year of college.
After Vera earned a TKO over Frank Mir in just 69 seconds (laughs like Beavis & Butthead), he got worked over by Tim Sylvia. At UFC 105, Vera controversially lost to Randy Couture by unanimous decision. Lately, Vera fights are tougher to watch than a Ashton Kutcher movie (seriously, why hasn’t someone kidnapped this guy by now?). Nonetheless, it’s a new year, and White is taking out the trash.
Tough break for Vera. Dana White’s got a stable of thoroughbreds right now that would make Hugh Hefner jealous. The top fighters in the world want to compete in UFC, and White won’t keep fighters who on the payroll don’t win. Even popular guys like Keith Jardine, who is probably somewhere in a Motel 6 closet with a baseball bat trying to collect his check.
