Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Marlon Vera has a chip on his shoulder. “Chito” not often has a pleasant factor to say about anybody, and regardless of his poise contained in the Octagon, he appears to stay eternally indignant exterior of the cage. Happily, it’s working for him, as Vera has gained 4 straight fights and superior into the Prime 5.
Spectacular work for a “journeyman.”
The newest topic of Vera’s scorn is Bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling. It’s no secret that “The Funkmaster” is among the many largest males at Bantamweight. He’s rangy and robust, attributes which actually assist him apply his normal ways of distance kickboxing and smothering high management. There’s additionally a cause that Sterling has talked about probably shifting as much as Featherweight: his weight reduce will not be simple.
In Vera’s eyes, shedding a lot water weight for the benefit of being the larger man is a lame transfer. Whereas a visitor on the Consider You Me podcast, he took a couple of digs on the Bantamweight champion.
“Chopping that a lot weight is dishonest to me,” Vera mentioned (through MMAFighting). “You’re type of a pu—y should you reduce that a lot weight, since you wish to be larger and stronger. As a result of he actually doesn’t damage no person, however he makes you carry his weight, takes you down. I’m 155 kilos in or out of camp. I really feel like that’s a pure 135-pounder, and I’m nonetheless considering I reduce a s—tload of weight, as a result of 20 kilos is so much. That motherf—ker weighs like 170, 180 kilos when he’s consuming f—king God is aware of what. Yeah, you may make the load [but] that’s why he’s been KOed unconscious, due to the quantity of weight he cuts. In case you contact him, he would possibly go down.”
Apparently, Vera could have discovered an unlikely ally in his campaign towards large Bantamweights in Sean O’Malley. “Suga” retweeted Vera’s feedback, after which he individually requested a number of elite Bantamweights about their present weight.
As well as, a flexing “Funkmaster” responded to Vera in a video, denying that he’s all the way in which up at 170- or 180-pounds. As a substitute, he claims he weighs nearer to 165 lbs.
“I’ve to return some video tapes.”
