Although Brandon Vera hadn’t fought in almost two years, the UFC vet showed no signs of cage rust at ONE’s “Conquest of Champions” today in Manila.
Vera took on Mauro Cerilli in the card’s headliner, and as you can see by watching the clip below, he quickly defended the heavyweight title by flooring the challenger with a left hook.
