Brandon Vera contract dispute details revealed?

Brandon Vera

Mark Dion -- the former manager for heavyweight Brandon Vera -- is claiming victory in their legal dispute over at CityBoxing.com.

According to the report, "The Liar" as Dion brands his former client, will have to honor the contract he signed with Dion and pay him one third of the purse from the fight with Tim Sylvia in November 2007, as well as $100,000 from future purses.

Ouch.

The PostIt pictured above is a handwritten offer from UFC President Dana White to Vera during the negotiations, which was some pretty decent coin for him at the time. Apparently, Vera and his management team countered with a signing bonus of $1.5 million and some other incentives with which the UFC did not agree.

Vera eventually came to terms with the UFC without the help of Dion. He was paid $100,000 for his loss to Tim Sylvia at UFC 77: "Hostile Territory" back in November 2007.
