There’s no doubt that a lot of people questioned the decision in the fight between Randy Couture and Brandon Vera when the two light heavyweights clashed at UFC 105 in November.
One person who definitely had issues with the judgment call was Vera, who voiced his opinion in a recent interview with MMAWeekly.com.
“Hell no, (expletive) that decision man,” Vera said. “I’m still mad about that decision.”
When the scorecards were read, Couture got the nod on a unanimous decision from the judges, but many felt that Vera’s ability to land damage whenever the two did engage was enough for the win.
Couture was able to press Vera against the cage over and over again and work the clinch game, but never gained much of an upper hand outside of positioning. The only real strikes thrown in the fight came from Vera, who punished Couture with a few good shots during the bout including a ferocious kick to the body.
Still, Vera is moving on and isn’t interested in a second duel with “The Natural.” He says it’s on to bigger and better things.
“Randy knows, the whole world knows how that fight went,” Vera commented. “So a rematch, if it happens, cool, but would I ask for one, no I’m trying to get to that title. I’m going to worry about Jon ‘Bones’ Jones first.”
Vera will face Jones in the main event of the upcoming UFC on Versus show taking place at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colo., on March 21.
