Brandon Vera Gets Called Out

Former UFC heavyweight, Brandon “The Truth” Vera is slated to make his ONE FC debut at December’s WARRIOR’S WAY, and it appears that someone is already calling him out.

That someone is Ukrainian heavyweight, Igor “Sugar Free” Subora:


The six-foot-plus Ukrainian has a 5-1 record and is not only on a five-fight win streak, but has earned all of his wins via first-round finish. He is also a former URCC heavyweight champion.

But does he have what it takes to stand toe-to-toe with a former WEC Grand Prix champion whose fight career began with an eight-fight win streak? If the fight happens, fans will have to wait and see.

WARRIOR’S WAY will be ONE Fighting Championship’s twenty-second event and will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippines on December 5th.
