Know why Marlon Vera is a beast!

Over the past few years, the UFC has seen several beasts compete in the octagon. From Daniel Cormier to Jon Jones, Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and many more. They fought, conquered, and are one of the greatest in history. From today onwards, a new name, Marlon Vera, will be included in that list.

The reason is that he is one of the greatest bantamweight fighters in UFC history. He has fought multiple fights in the octagon and has tasted victory as well as defeat. Moreover, he hasn’t won any championships but is still a beast. Confused?

Know why Marlon Vera is a beast!

Marlon Vera has fought 33 fights in his MMA career and has a record of 23-9-1. He has won eight fights by knockouts, ten fights by submission, and five fights by decision. On the other hand, all nine fights that he has lost are all decisions.

Vera is still not pinned down or knocked out in his MMA career. Moreover, in almost every fight that he has lost, he has taken lethal strikes from his opponents but still hasn’t been knocked out.

In his most recent fight against Sean O’Malley for the UFC Bantamweight Championship, he took 230 significant strikes, including a lethal knee-to-chin strike. Despite all of this, he stood tall without any blood marks on his body.
