UFC 77: Hostile Territory - We're betting BIG on Brandon "the Truth" Vera to beat Tim "the Maine-iac" Sylvia

Friday, October 19th, 2007 1:00 am by admin

UFC 77: Hostile TerritoryBrandon VeraOne of our favorite UFC fighters here at OfferOfTheDay.com is Brandon “the Truth” Vera and he’s fighting at UFC 77 this Saturday. We are confident that Vera will stun the MMA1 world by dismantling Tim “the Maine-iac” Sylvia with relative ease.

Tim Sylvia, the 6′ 8″, 260 pound giant, will be too slow for the quick and agile, 6′ 3″, 225 pound Vera2. We highly suspect that Tim Sylvia will use his reach advantage and try his darnedest to jab his way to a “cheap” victory like he’s done on multiple occasions. On the other hand, Brandon Vera will try and mix it up, like he always does (punches, kicks, clinch-work, & submissions) and make an exciting fight. If Tim can’t keep up with Vera’s speed, we may see poor old Tim literally crap his shorts again3.

Today’s Offer…

Vera is almost a 5:4 favorite. We here at OTD are betting “BIG” for our boy Brandon to be victorious. Ride our coattails, and make some EASY $$$ alongside OfferOfTheDay.com by placing a bet for Brandon Vera at BetUS.com NOW!!!

We are placing this enormous bet because we at OTD are a bunch of Brandon Vera nut-huggers. The guy is brash and confident; some people say arrogant. We like the fact that he’s cocky, plus the fact he FINISHES all his fights by knockout or submission. If you’ve seen some of Tim Sylvia’s fights recently, you’ve probably wanted to hit yourself over the head with a meat cleaver because they were so friggin’ boring.

By the way, when Vera wins this Saturday, watch out for the ultra-cool post-fight dance4 he does in the cage immediately after the referee pulls him off of Sylvia’s bloodied body.

Brandon Vera’s gloved hand will be raised on Saturday … but, don’t believe our hype … believe what you see.

Other Brandon Vera factoids:

  • Vera has won his last 4 UFC fights and has a perfect 8-0 MMA record
  • Vera has not fought professionally for the last 11 months due to contractual and managerial complications
  • Vera is considered a “small” heavyweight and can easily be a formidable force in the UFC lightweight division.
  • Vera wants to be the “Manny Pacquiao5 of MMA”.
  • Vera speaks Tagalog, in addition to English
  • Vera trains and lives in San Diego, California
  • Vera is married to Kerry Vera who is also a professional fighter

After Brandon’s victory, I plan to scale up *4* weight classes to fight Mr. Vera. After he tastes my Soap Genie cleansed, fecal-free overhand right, the only dancing will be me waving my gloved hands in the air like I just don’t care.

Brandon Vera is gonna chop down the big Oak tree we know as Tim Sylvia. I really don’t want Sylvia to win. The UFC needs the like-able and exciting fighters to win.

Brandon breaks his hand in early in the 1st round against Tim Sylvia’s titanium rodded forearm…thus losing the fight by decision.
