It looks as if Brandon Vera has found a new employer following his release from the UFC. The Asian juggernaut ONE FC announced today that they have signed “The Truth” and expect him to grace a card later this year.
Vera has been on the UFC roster since 2005 and a 2006 win over Frank Mir had many thinking he was the next great star in the heavyweight division. Vera thought he could be champ in both the heavyweight and 205 pound class. It wasn’t meant to be though. Vera’s last win was in 2011 over Elliot Marshall.
The 36 year old Vera has battled injuries and setbacks for the latter part of his career but a couple of fights for ONE FC may just help him sail into the sunset on a positive note. There is still some value in Vera as he comes from a great camp in Alliance MMA. I am a fan of “The Truth” and hope to see him make a splash in Asia.
