During a random encounter at the UFC host hotel this week, O’Malley and Vera ran into each other. The following was caught on camera by the Embedded crew for all to hear:

“Ready to get knocked out?” O’Malley asked Vera.

“Come and suck my (expletive),” Vera fired back.

“Come and suck my (expletive)? That’s weird,” O’Malley said.

Vera would expand to the Embedded cameras on the encounter.

“I asked him to suck my (expletive),” he said (thanks to MMA Mania for the quotes). “I’m bulletproof. I got a strong mentality. All this (expletive) doesn’t get to me.

“Pressure? Throw more wood to the fire, I live there.”
