Interview With Brandon Vera

Brandon Vera

An interesting interview took place between Brandon Vera and Scoop Malinowski of mmamemories.com recently; Vera talks about life in the UFC and also discusses other topics.  Below are some excerpts:

MMAMemories.com: A few hardcore MMA fans know your background as far as how you got into MMA, but most casual fans really don’t know your entire story. How did you end up meeting your BJJ trainer, Lloyd Irvin, and end up in the fight game?

Brandon Vera: “We met at a tournament in New Jersey, I’d say in around 2002 maybe. And I didn’t have no one training with me or working with me. He approached me and told me I was doing good things and that I should go forward. We stayed in contact and it just grew from there.”

MMAMemories.com: Your wife, Kerry, was featured in the second season of Fight Girls on Oxygen. How did the show change her life and maybe your life in terms of becoming more popular and well-known in the mainstream culture?

Brandon Vera: “[Laughs and then asks his wife]…Did it change your life? …No, it didn’t really change our lives.”
