Brandon Vera is a former ONE Championship heavyweight world champion. After an 18-month layoff, he is returning to ONE next Saturday; to fight Amir Aliakbari, an Iranian Greco-Roman wrestling world champion.
Popularly nicknamed “The Truth”, Vera is looking for a dominant win. And he’s even got another opponent in mind after the fight against Aliakbari… None other than Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida.
The 45-year old spoke about how he’d fight Buchecha, in a recent interview with The MMA Superfan:
I would work with him. I wouldn’t just sit there and hold either, I would try to make him work positions.
If he’s gonna try to catch something, we’re gonna do rep after rep after rep before you catch. We’re gonna do reps.
He’s a master so you just have to be in shape and keep rolling with him.
A fight between “The Truth” and “Buchecha” would, without a doubt, be an exciting one. Especially taking into consideration the work ethic and the discipline both fighters take to the octagon.
For instance, here’s what Almeida had to say about discipline:
I think that discipline is the key for anything in life. Not just in this sport, but anything in life.
If you don’t give yourself, like, 100% of yourself in anything that you do… You’re not going to get the results that you’re expecting.
So, I think that everything starts with this discipline. Since when you wake up, when you open up your eyes… On the bed, when you go to sleep…
So, [in] everything you have to have discipline. And it’s going to reflect at the end of the day, in your results. So, I think that’s the key.
