Default Vera not cut following Silva drug fail

So apparently the fight will be ruled a no contest and Vera will not be cut.

Well, I'm a Vera fan so I'm glad to hear this good news! I hope he can figure out what he needs to do to get back to his winning ways. Thanks for posting it, Llama.

Cool, so he gets 1 more fight before he gets cut. That's good because they still have him on a commercial modelling some clothes.

Well, at least he has a 'plan B' to fall back on, lol. I've never liked the guy much, although at least the cocky attitude he displayed early on appears to have been smacked out of him. I don't even know who they would match him up with at this point...I don't think he can beat anybody in the top 15 or so.

Ugh, I'm sick of Vera. I tried to like him because he's a Virginia boy, but I can't get over his inherent arrogance (must be the ODU in him) & belief that things must work out in his favor.

I hope that Thiago comes back clean so that he can dash Brandon's hopes AGAIN!

+1, but if Thiago doesn't come back clean then he is fairly entitled to being back..

Yeah, I didn't care for him much after he claimed that he would be the first to hold both the UFC LHM & HW titles simultaneously, when at the same time, I was thinking "Who has he really beaten to make that type of claim?"
