Brandon Vera still not buying Jon Jones hype
"During the fight I remember thinking, ‘Man, really? All the hype was about this guy?’" Vera said. "I specifically remember saying to him in my head, ‘Man, you (expletive) suck.’
"Right when the ‘k’ came out in my head, I got blasted."
"It’s hard for me to say because he beat me, but I still don’t believe the hype," Vera said. "I like Jon Jones as a fighter, but I owe that (expletive). He’s definitely not coming to my house for Christmas."
"I’m still babying it, but it’s getting better," Vera said. "At one point, I couldn’t even touch it. December or January is when I’m looking to come back. I test my face every day to see what I can get away with."
