‘F*ck You Brian Stann’: Brandon Vera Not Impressed With the All-American’s UFC Commentary Debut

Despite being one of the most likable human beings in the history of this ugly sport, former UFC fighter Brian Stann picked up a very high-profile hater over the weekend. Stann handled color-commentary duties for UFC 163, and his analysis of the Phil Davis vs. Lyoto Machida co-main event spurred Brandon Vera to fire some shots on Facebook:

@philmrwonderful super awesome job boss…!!!!! U are the man!!! Fuck you @brianstann learn how to be an unbiased commentator bitch. Don’t ?#?hate? cuz he beat Ur ass too!!!

Vera, of course, is a totally unbiased observer, who just happens to be a longtime training partner of Phil Davis. But hey, that’s the drawback of social media — any asshole with an Internet connection can tell you how to do your job.

As you can imagine, Brian Stann is too classy to respond to Vera’s angry insults, but Vera did make a retraction after he cooled off a bit:

@BrianStann tho my opinion remains the same my choice of words shoulda been better. For my words I apologize.

Vera then went back on Facebook and asked his followers to share some bullshit comparing New York City’s “If You See Something, Say Something” anti-terrorism campaign to Nazi Germany. So from now on, whenever you see an abandoned backpack in a crowded public place, Just Say Fuck It™.

For those of you who watched UFC 163 on Saturday, what did you think of Brian Stann’s performance in the broadcast booth? And was he more or less “biased” than regular color-man Joe Rogan?

brian is as good an announcer as he was a fighter, a one dimensional can who retired early because he couldnt keep up

I thought Stann was surprisingly good. I wasn't expecting much, as it was his first time, but he gave a lot of knowledgeable insight that you could only get from someone who trains MMA. Kind of like what Florian used to do, now he just dumbs it down for the average MMA fan for some reason.
Obviously Stann could be more comfortable on the Mic, but that comes with time and I thought he did good job in that aspect for his first time.

I don't remember all the examples of good commentary, but he called out Korean Zombies dislocated shoulder immediately after it happened.

Bias or no, I was unimpressed with Stann's performance. It wasn't the worst mind you, I just feel he should start out with Invicta or KOTC and work his way up. Now, I'm a fan fan of Stann's, as a fighter as well as a person, but you gotta crawl before you can walk.

That looks like a post you'd expect from a dumbass junior high kid, not a grown man. I used to feel sorry for Vera when he was getting his ass kicked by everyone he fought, including timay. Now I realize getting ridden like a donkey by Thiago was just karma coming back to him.

nice article fag. If you like smelling men's dicks. tired of this site that has sour grapes to bust. The writers here are some real bitter cunts.Seriously quit trying to write like a gossip site.

well, luckily brandon vera sucks at just about everything, so his opinions don't really matter.

Good point Teehee, Marines like Brian Stann could easily kill even the most high trained martial artist in a fight to the death using nothing but their bare hands. They just use assault rifles typically when they need to kill someone because it's more fun, right?

One fun fact about Brian Stann is that even though he may lose to someone in a cage fight with rules, you put that same fight in the woods and make it a fight to the death then Stann wins Every. Fucking. Time.

Brian Stann is way too classy to respond to that vitriol. That Predator drone circling San Diego has no such qualms.

Who is Brandon Vera?
Fried Taco- August 5, 2013 at 8:41 am
So according to Vera, Obama is Hitler and terrorists are the Jews?
HandsofGold- August 5, 2013 at 8:38 am
Machida clearly won... Vera just forgot what a win looks like its been a while obviously....
