Brandon Vera on his way back to the UFC following Thiago Silva’s failed drug test

Former UFC light heavyweight, Brandon Vera is in line for a quick return to the octagon despite being on a three-fight losing streak and just being cut last month from the roster due to the positive drug test from his last loss, Thiago Silva.

According to a source close to the fighter, the former heavyweight is putting pen to paper on a last chance contract and is no longer taking offers from any other promotions.

Vera lost a close decision to “Hall of Famer”, Randy Couture in November 2009 before Jon Jones smashed his just four months later. All before he was dominated by Thiago Silva for three rounds just last month before the Brazilian tested positive for drugs.
