Brandon Vera förklarar varför han hoppade av matchen mot Thiago Silva

En returmatch bokades mellan Brandon Vera och Thiago Silva i torsdags förra veckan, men bara två dagar senare ströks matchen och Vera berättade att han var skadad.

Ett par förvånade miner dök upp, och spekulationer startade om att hans näsa inte godkänt matchen. Så nu har Vera skickat ut en officiell förklaring via sin Facebook-sida om varför matchen inte kunde genomföras just nu.

“Hey everybody, it’s Brandon “The Truth” Vera here. I wanted to clear up some stuff, and apologize. I’ve been bugging my manager, I’ve been bugging Joe Silva and the UFC, so as soon as Thiago Silva’s suspension was over and he was available, I would like to be the first one to fight him and get back in there with him. Kind of a welcome back thing. Finally the fight came, Joe said the fight can happen May 15th. My manager told me the fight is happening May 15th…and without thinking, without talking to my coaches, without talking to my doctors, I verbally said ‘Yes, I’m down for the fight, let’s do this, let’s get it done. I’m in.’ Super excited, hung up the phone, promptly went on a run, and got super excited.

The next morning I went to my doctors after training and told my doctors that I was planning on fighting May 15th, and…everybody looked at me like I was crazy. They said there’s no way I’ll be ready by then, and I need to focus on getting better. So I sat down and was thinking ‘Yeah, maybe those guys are right.’ So I didn’t check with my doctors, I didn’t check with my coaches. I apologize to both you guys. I apologize to Joe Silva and my manager Matt Stansell. I apologize to my fans. I still wanna fight you bad Thiago, Thiago, however you say your name juice monkey. I still wanna fight you bad. So whenever you’re ready, whenever I’m healthy enough, I’m your huckleberry.”

Om ni väljer att tro på honom, eller misstänker att näsan fortfarande styr honom är upp till er.
