A stand up war is brewing, when Brandon Vera takes on Thiago Silva at UFC 125, an event that’s set to go down on January 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Vera is coming off back to back losses most recently in March suffering a first round TKO loss at the hands of Jon Jones and before that losing a close decision to UFC legend and Hall of Famer, Randy Couture.
