Brandon Vera has retired from the sport following a defeat to Amir Aliakbari at Saturday’s ONE Championship 164 card in Singapore.

The second-to-last MMA fight of the card featured the return of the longtime MMA veteran against Aliakbari, and it didn’t end well for the former UFC fighter. Vera, an ex-champion at ONE, started off throwing jabs from the outside, and Aliakbari patiently waited for the right time to shoot for a takedown. Once he had Vera on his back, Aliakbari landed a serious of vicious punches and elbows that forced referee Herb Dean to call the TKO finish.

Vera announced his retirement from the sport following the defeat, his third straight inside the ONE cage.

Brooks is now undefeated in seven fights since leaving the UFC in 2018.
