Brandon "The Truth" Vera clearly does not want to be called lethargic or not aggressive again, as he came out swinging in the first round with a zealous gameplan that called for low kicks, and high power combinations. Mike Patt was visibly hurt by the bevy of low kicks. The fight ended early in the second round, as Vera first knocked Patt down with a kick, but then let him stand back up again. Vera then threw the same leg kicks and took Patt out at 1:27 in the second. Patt never figured out a defense to Vera's kicks. After the fight, Vera said that he is back to his Muay Thai roots, and is finally more comfortable at the light heavyweight division.
