Brandon Vera Released By UFC

Following two-straight losses and a year stint of inactivity, longtime fighting staple Brandon Vera has reportedly been released from his contract at the UFC.

FOX News was first to report.

Vera started his Mixed Martial Arts career back in 2002 and started competing for the UFC as a heavyweight just three years later.

After a stint of losses at heavyweight he moved down to light-heavyweight where he saw mixed results.

In Vera’s last UFC bout he moved back to heavyweight where he got starched by Ben Rothwell in the bouts closing minutes.
