After his exit from UFC, Brandon Vera is back in the promotion! But he's not coming for UFC 128 -- at least not yet.

A few months ago, UFC released Brandon Vera after his loss to Thiago Silva at UFC 125. But its seems that his exit was short-lived, as he will have his UFC return for at least another fight.

However, it is not yet clear whether Brandon Vera’s return will be contractual or simply another chance given by UFC. In addition to this, he has not been offered a fight slot as of the moment. One bout that Brandon Vera will not be part of, at least, is filling in for Karlos Vemola. Karlos Vemola was forced to back out from his UFC 128 fight due to injury.

Brandon Vera’s return has no definite date as of this time. But in case he gets a new match, Fighting Insider will keep you posted.
