Also he'll talk about Bisping and if he'll continue to seek that fight after Lombard, how Hector sizes up against him and the thoughts of Lombard being offered a title shot if he can beat Tim.
"I think of Dana said Hector's getting a title shot if he beats me, I think he should grant me the same thing. I want a title shot when I knock out Hector"
Brandon Vera is one of the sport's most talented fighters who never found his full potential. Brandon stays honest when he tells us about not being where he should be now, why his training is different and what about this fight with Shogun is so important. Fighting a legend or fighting on national TV.
"Everyone keeps saying it's such a huge deal, it's the main event on Fox. I don't care, the biggest thing is I'm fighting Shogun...Dude, I'm fighting Shogun, everything else is second. I'm fighting Shogun!"
"I eat, sleep, wake up thinking about Shogun."
