"I fought an A-level fighter, we went the distance, and he didn't dominate me. I'll come back a lot stronger from this fight the next time around. I don't know how to explain it, but I just felt flat. It wasn't my day. When my head told my body to go, it just wouldn't respond. Brandon Vera is very good, and he's very tough. He's the toughest and most skilled fighter I've ever fought. But I learned I belong in the UFC and that I'm here to stay. I know where the A level is, and I know how close I am to it. I'll get there. I know I will."
Former Ultimate Fighter 8 contestant Krzysztof Soszynski talks about his unanimous decision loss to Brandon Vera at UFC 102: "Couture vs. Nogueira" on August 29 in Portland. "The Polish Experiment" took the fight on short notice to fill in for the injured Matt Hamill but came up short on the judges scorecards after being picked apart on his feet by "The Truth." The tough Canadian vows to come back better than ever and no doubt UFC fans will see him return to the Octagon sooner rather than later.
