Yup, you heard right. Brandon Vera is still an official fighter in the UFC. He was cut this past month after his third consecutive loss at UFC 125 at the hands of Thiago Silva.
But according to several sources, the loss is expected to be overturned to a “no contest” following some issues involved around Silva’s post fight drug test. This also led to Vera’s release from the organization being taken back.
For now, Vera is just on the fight roster, but is not officially booked for any upcoming fights. Until this last week, the fighter was medically suspended for a broken nose that he received during his fight with Silva.
