Brandon Vera didn’t shock the world, but he did gain a few new fans Saturday night. Vera went three-plus rounds with former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in the main event of UFC on Fox: Shogun vs. Vera.
In the fourth, Rua finished Vera, earning a stoppage victory. However, the UFC decided to give the position of next contender in the division to Lyoto Machida.
