The Ultimate Fighting Championship held a conference call today to help promote Saturday’s UFC on FOX 4 card headlined by a number one light heavyweight contender’s bout between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Brandon “The Truth” Vera.
UFC President Dana White hosted today’s call and was joined by “Shogun” and Vera, as well as UFC on FOX 4 co-headliners Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida and Ryan “Darth” Bader. Many of the questions revolved around White’s confirmation that the winner of the Shogun vs. Vera fight would be granted a title shot.
We also got a question in to Bader, asking his thoughts on Vera being tapped for a potential title shot ahead of him, even though he has back-to-back wins, including a unanimous decision over Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in February, and Vera’s only win in the last two years was over Eliot Marshall in October 2011.
