UFC Quick Quote: Vera says 'I'll be ready in 2008'

brandon vera comes back to ufc in 2008

"I'm not afraid of any of them. And that goes for Chuck Liddell, Quinton Jackson, Tito Ortiz and anyone else in the lightheavyweight division. I'm more well-rounded than all of them. I've still got holes in my game. The only guy who doesn't is Fedor. But Irvin and I are working on it, fixing my flaws, hunting for his. It's almost programmed, playing out as planned. I'll be ready in 2008. And when Fedor slips, I'll be there."

-- Undefeated UFC heavyweight star Brandon Vera -- who has not fought inside the Octagon since late 2006 because of contract and management issues -- is quoted on as saying that he's a more well-rounded fighter than some of the best in the sport ... except for PRIDE FC Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko.
