MANILA, Philippines – Veteran Filipino-American fighter Brandon Vera has entered a deal with Asian-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, ONE Fighting Championship.

Vera, known as “The Truth,” used to campaign in the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions of the UFC and was considered one of its rising stars.

He later parted ways with the UFC and found a new home in ONE FC.

“MMA Superstar Brandon Vera has officially signed with ONE FC, Asia’s largest MMA organization. @Verafied @victoronefc,” announced ONE FC via Twitter.

The Asian promotion has yet to bare details of the deal including Vera’s ONE FC debut.

Among his best fights were his knockout victory against former UFC champion Frank Mir and his competitive outings against former champions Mauricio Rua and Randy Couture.
