Vera was born into a middle-class family in Chone, Ecuador.[9] He has an older sister and brother.[9] Causing ruckus and getting into street fights throughout his youth, Vera started training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu in his newly-adopted hometown of Guayaquil at the age of 16.[9]

Mixed martial arts career


Early career


Vera began training as an amateur in 2011 and made his professional debut in February 2012. He compiled a record of 8–1–1, competing for regional promotions in Latin America before trying out for The Ultimate Fighter in 2014.

The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America


In May 2014, it was revealed that Vera was a cast member of The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America, competing for Team Werdum.[10]

Over the course of the show, Vera first defeated Henry Briones in the quarterfinals via knockout.[11] Subsequently, Vera was forced out of his semi-final bout with a skin infection and was replaced by Guido Cannetti.[12]

Guangyou was cleared of wrongdoing after it was determined by USADA that he had possibly ingested tainted meat from China. As a result, he was not punished. The bout was rescheduled and expected to take place the following week at UFC on Fox 21.[21] In turn, the bout was postponed again due to alleged visa issues for Guangyou, which restricted the timing of his travel.[22] The pairing eventually took place at featherweight on November 27, 2016, at UFC Fight Night 101.
