Fans haven't see the last of "The Truth."

Not long after Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) parted ways with longtime heavyweight veteran Brandon Vera, ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC) added the aging combat sports mainstay to its ever-expanding roster, according to a tweet sent out on Sunday.

Which is a win/win for both sides, considering how often the promotion stages events in Philippines.

Vera, 36, was at one time considered a future champion, racking up eight straight wins and finishing off former UFC heavyweight kingpin Frank Mir. But after a perfect 8-0 start to his mixed martial arts (MMA) career, "The Truth" has gone just 4-7 with one no contest and has struggled to stay healthy.

Time for a fresh start.

No date (or weight class) has been established for his debut, but it will likely depend on how quickly he recovers from his latest hand injury (more on that here). Vera (12-7) hasn't seen action since a technical knockout loss to Ben Rothwell last August.

At least he'll be able to see a familiar face.
