It's Official: Vera vs. Sylvia at UFC 77


The following is an excerpt from a UFC 77 press release that was issued today:

"Also on the UFC 77 card will be a heavyweight matchup between former UFC Champion Tim 'The Maine-iac' Sylvia and unbeaten Brandon 'The Truth' Vera. This fight will mark the first fight for Vera since a contract dispute with former management sidelined him for almost a year. The dynamic Vera (8-0) is excited to get back in the Octagon, and he expects to pick up where he left off last year by defeating Sylvia and every opponent afterward until he becomes the UFC heavyweight champion. The 6 foot 8 Sylvia (25-3), only the second man in UFC history to win the heavyweight title twice, would like to eventually join the man he lost the crown to in March, Randy Couture, as the only fighters in history to win the title three times. A win over Vera will push him firmly in that positive direction."

Anderson vs. Rich Franklin. Tim Sylvia vs. Brandon Vera. The UFC 77 card is looking gooooood.
