UFC NEWS – QuickTwitt: Brandon Vera Calls Out Returning Thiago Silva For Rematch And Redemption

Old wounds die hard it would seem…

UFC light-heavyweight fighter Brandon Vera sends out a challenge to his former/current foe, Thiago Silva, following news that Silva’s one-year athletic suspension is up and he is eligible to apply for a license to fight.

The two first met at UFC 125 and Brandon Vera received the beating of his life. Vera ended up being dismissed from his contract with the UFC for the loss only to be brought back once the Nevada State Athletic Commission discovered a tampered urine sample had been received from Silva.

With Silva casted out as a cheat, an obviously upset Vera is now lobbying for a rematch and a shot at redeeming himself against Silva.

    Vera has no business calling out anyone.

      “Beating of his life” 😀 Nice way to word it. Based on how Vera looked in his last fight I don’t think Silva is a good choice at the moment. Although Silva may have ring rust and that could prove to be an advantage…Vera still looked suspect in his last fight.

  2. MMFT says:

    bad choice, vera…

  3. SP says:

    Yea bad choice. A loss somewhere else could be forgivable but a second loss to the ape man would be the end of his UFC career.

    Got a feeling he’ll win this time though. After that I wish he would move back to HW.
    He’s been so weak in 205.

  4. MOHAMED says:

    hahahah this gonna be fun

    Thiago should train his Drum skills cause he will need 2 use them again

  5. danriverapv says:

    i have always enjoyed Brandon Vera but he looked like SHIT in his last fight against Elliot Marshall. and even before that… hes got amazing striking but just did not want to let it go in that fight i dunno why.

  6. Justen says:

    Silva will make him look like a fool again. Be careful what you wish for Mr. Vera. lol

  7. FunCrush says:

    Vera has been trigger shy in his past few outtings, even against Elliot Marshall (who has no standup and is strictly a ground fighter) which has contributed to his demise. But I don’t think he would be trigger shy in a rematch against a bully who smashed Veras nose, the was busted for roids. Vera is a better technical striker, but lacks killer instinct, and raw power that Thiago has. Plus, Silva hasnt fought in a while. I wouldnt bet on Vera in a rematch but I wouldnt be shocked if he unleashed the beast and kicked Thiagos head off.

  8. Jpz says:

    Vera you’ll decimated again , bad choice pal

  9. rondo says:

    Veras all talk no action,hope Thiago gets to smash him again!

  10. seprodrigo says:

    Thiago will smash him with out without PED’s

  11. jason sanchez says:

    As a Filipino I always love Brandon until he refused to let go of his Muay Thai. For some reason I think, after the Werdum losa, he was never the same guy who knocked out Frank Mir. If he could bring that guy back in this second match against Thiago, I think that would be cool.

  12. Xaninho says:

    I don’t think he will beat Thiago Silva regardless whether Thago is on PED’s or not.

  13. John M says:

    I 100% agree that it was wrong for Silva to juice, however I don’t know when exactly in his career he started juicing. I may be wrong but I would guess it was for his camp against Vera as he did seem freakishly strong. It would seem to me this makes the most sense as he must have been frustrated after the Rashad fight, being taken down countless times.

    With that said, I feel Silva has never needed to juice in order to be that more successful. For the most part he has had an great career with only 2 loses to 2 of the top 10 ranked fighters in the world. I hope he returns humbled, clean and hungry to work his way back to the top.

  14. LMAO Brandon Vera is the Dan Hardy of LHW. Give it up dude Thiago would use your head as a bongo drum again.

  15. Matthew Logan says:

    I think Silva lit a fire under Vera’s ass…… I think Vera would totally take this one….

  16. tommy says:

    thiago will murder him

  17. Chartmonster says:

    Brandon..Wanting another ass kicking from the headhunter Chiago! After that layoff he’ll be even hungier then before, just like a bear in hibernation! Chiago Silva FTW!

  18. Robbie Wiggins says:

    Hey dumbo! He took steroids to heal from an injury not to win a fight against you! Get ready for another spank’n Vera!!!

    • Really??? says:

      People that say shit like this are fucking idiots. He took steriods because he is a fucking cheater. Just cuz he says it was for an injury makes it ok. So I guess everyone should use roids when they get injured. He knew he was cheating fuck his injury and his lame ass excuses. He tried so hard to get away with cheating he tryed to use animal piss to pass the test. No respect for Roid users

  19. Jmad says:

    Don’t do it Brandon. I really don’t wanna see you get smashed again.

  20. Bendetta says:

    Silvas Twitter : I want that nose

  21. The natural says:

    Just because u stop juicing doesn’t mean ur any weaker specially with muscle memory it wi be same results

  22. TJ says:

    are you kidding he cracked vera’s skull like a monkey trying to crack a coconut last time i say give vera some roids and keep silva clean and vera would still get his face beat in.

  23. krafty11 says:

    I know Silva got suspended, but he never actually tested positive, did he? just used the non-human urine sample or whatever. I know it doesn’t really matter now, but was just wondering.. anyways, I see Vera getting beat up again and getting his walking papers for a second time. then again, its MMA. anything can happen.
