You can’t say Brandon Vera isn’t tough.

“I got caught with an elbow to my face. I got caught good, it was a good elbow Jones, congratulations on the win. I look forward to fighting you again one day… It hurt man. I didn’t know what happened, [but] I didn’t go out. I went to the doctor’s last night and again today and I am going to be getting surgery on my face. My cheekbone and my orbital got cracked…The UFC has been great, they extended my stay here for an extra day. Thanks for the support, I never been on this end of it before… the UFC takes care of their fighters for sure. Soon as I have had the surgery I will be back in the gym. We’ll be back in there ASAP. Don’t get it twisted, I ain’t going nowhere.”
