Moreover, he shares mutual respect in his heart for Edgar, talking about that image in his latest interview with Ariel Helwani for MMA hour, Marlon Vera says,

“It’s a f*cked up picture, I don’t post it. It’s f*cked up. I put it like this — it’s him or me. I always talk like this, it’s my family that I’ve got to bring the bread home against your family. I’m sorry. F*ck you for that. I’m going to do everything to do for my family, for my loved ones. We’re fighting for that. We’re fighting for a better future, for everything at home.”

“But it’s a f*cked up picture. I don’t post that picture. Everybody’s tagging me. I don’t think even in the stories, I don’t even want to reply. The guy still has a family, the guy still has a life and that was Saturday night.” {H/T MMA Fighting}
