Shogun Rua vs. Brandon Vera: 3 Fights for Brandon Vera to Take Next
Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

If there was ever such a thing as a moral victory in an MMA fight, Brandon Vera achieved just that. He battled former UFC champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua through four rounds and showed flashes of the old Vera that became one of the top prospects in the UFC.

In the end, however, it was not enough, as Vera dropped to the canvas after another offensive barrage from "Shogun."

Vera had found himself in the rare position to earn a title shot with a questionable record and will likely find himself back in the middle of the pack in the 205-pound division.

Dana White seemed to be impressed with Vera's performance, which will likely earn him another shot at victory inside the Octagon.
