Default brandon Vera vs Tim Sylvia is official

On a UFC 74 conference call, UFC president Dana White confirmed Brandon Vera will return before the end of 2007 and his opponent will be former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia.


Brandon Vera last fought at UFC 65 (November 18, 2006), beating former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir by TKO in the first round.
Just a month later, Vera attended the inaugural press conference of promoter Gary Shaw's EliteXC MMA promotion.


At the time, Vera had just one fight left on his UFC contract and told the press his future was with "whoever wants to take care of me the best."

After that EliteXC appearance and subsequent layoff from competition, rumors swirled that Vera was being punished by Dana White. Thursday (August 16th), White told the media that wasn't true.

White said Vera's layoff was caused by Vera's management change.
