    Vera pulls out (of July 19th card)

    Vera was scheduled to fight Reese Andy (my coach) on the July 19th UFC card, but after arriving at the gym this morning Reese informed that the agent from the UFC called and said that Vera was pulling out. Apparently he's suffering from 'dizzy spells'. The UFC is now trying to find a replacement for Vera with Machida and Wand being two possabilities. This could be a huge windfall for Andy if gets to fight, and beat the number 2 ranked Machida.

    I'll report more as I hear it.

    That is kind of good news to me if we get to see Machida or Wanderlei fight
    Good luck to your coach

    Yeah, I would much rather see one of them fight than Vera. Plus, if the UFC is going to make my coach job to someone, I would rather have it be Machida or Wand than Vera.

    This sucks... Vera is technically a team-mate even though he is on a different coast. I am sure I will hear more on my end in training this week about it.

    So, it was not a quick stoppage for Vera, in his last fight.

    Didn't someone mention on another thread that Wand turned down a fight on this card?

    Possible. Also possible that he is cutting weight in the wrong manner/who knows.

    If the bout is delayed, is there anyway your coach can get a quick name change?
    Even Andy Reese would be better.

    Oh well, I suppose Matt Nick would be worse.
