If you watched that show on the Oxygen Channel called Fight Girls, then you probably saw Brandon Vera make a little cameo appearance when he flew to Thailand to clean-up his wife’s muay-thai. Fight Girls was a solid show, it went two seasons and then it was unexpectedly axed by some corporate entity at Oxygen because it ‘didn’t appeal to women’. My friend always told me the reason they called it ‘Oxygen’ was because every dude was struggling to come up for air after watching one of their shows. I didn’t really know what that meant so I reminded him that humans actually breathe in a mixture of oxygen, nitrogen and a variety of other gasses when we inhale. This is why I don’t have a girlfriend.
Last August, Brandon Vera said he will hold the UFC Light Heavyweight as well as the Heavyweight belt and when that happened…he was going to call it a day. This was a couple months before Randy Couture squeaked out that controversial decision win over him. With another L on his record, Brandon Vera has decided that he doesn’t want to be #1 anymore. Not at all. Brandon Vera wants to hold down the #3 spot and once that happens…we’re assuming he will call it a day.
“I’m asking for the No. 3 spot. I don’t give a damn who’s at No. 3. I can’t ask for No. 1, and I can’t ask for No. 2; that’s (champion Lyoto) Machida and (Mauricio) “Shogun” (Rua) respectively. You’ve got to climb the ladder.”
If we lived in the Bronze Age, placing third would be the thing to do. Some of you guys got that, others are probably still hung up that I told my friend we breathe a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen. It’s cool man. It’s Saturday, I’ll let it slide. [Source]
