Former UFC fighter Brandon Vera has signed on with ONE FC, the top MMA promotion in Asia. Officials confirmed the signing recently.
Vera (12-7) was released following back-to-back knockout losses, the last of which came in August to Ben Rothwell. He was also finished by Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in 2012, going 1-4 with one no-contest in his last five UFC fights.
“The Truth” started his career off with eight consecutive victories, including a 2006 first round TKO win over Frank Mir that led to a bout with another former UFC heavyweight champion, Tim Sylvia. Vera, though, lost via decision and followed that up with a TKO loss to Fabricio Werdum.
No announcement of Vera’s ONE FC debut was made. Along with facing Mir and Sylvia, Vera also lost to Randy Couture and Jon Jones.
