UFC Quick Quote: Brandon Vera 'pissed' over judges decision; agrees to 'man up' and accept loss to Randy Couture


"I’m pissed, I’m really pissed, but the sport of MMA, she's a bitch and if you let it go to the judges, you let it out of your hands, you know? So, I’m going to take the blame for this loss. I’m going to man up. I should have finished it. I had a couple of opportunities to during the fight that I should have finished it. I’m super happy I got to fight Randy Couture, my hero, my legend, and let the rest of the light heavyweight division know that I’m going to whip your ass if you get into the Octagon with me."

-- UFC light heavyweight Brandon Vera vents during the UFC 105 post fight press conference about the unanimous decision loss he suffered to Randy Couture during the evening's main event. "The Truth" thought the result was a lie, confident he had done more (and more damage) during his battle with "The Natural" in Manchester on Nov. 14. How about it? Was Vera betrayed by the scorecards? Or did Couture do enough during the fight to make it a clear-cut decision? Opinions please.
