“My coaches are saying, ‘You’ve got one more round.’ My body’s like, ‘No, three more. Let’s do three more before we call it a day,’ I don’t know why it’s happening, but I’m just riding with it.”
– Brandon Vera on his significantly improved conditioning coming into his fight with Randy Couture at UFC 105. Reports are that Vera is viewing the fight as his second chance at superstardom, and, because of that, is preparing for his Nov 14 fight like none before. Vera is often characterized as ultra-talented, but sometimes lacking in conditioning and preparation. Vera hopes an impressive performance against the 46-year old UFC legend will plant him back in title contention.
