  • Maaaaaaaan….. Jus gonna get beat up lol

  • Having watched back the fight with izzy... no chance! Yes Derek may have got better but izzy has improved exponentially. Give the shot to Cannonier before Bumson.

  • Derek is Underrated

  • It's going to depend on what happens with Izzy/Whittaker 2. If Rob manages to win (unlikely, but I'm not counting him out), then we're probably going to get an immediate trilogy fight. If that's the case, the title picture at MW will pretty much be bottlenecked through 2022. Given his indication that he wants to remain active, I have to imagine that Cannonier's going to fight again before that's all said and done if Rob wins. He'd likely face the winner of Costa/Vettori or Strickland/Rockhold. If he were win that fight, I'd give him the shot over Brunson. Some things are going to have to go Derek's way for him to get there. With the way Cannonier shut down any sort of offensive grappling attack from Hermansson and Gastelum, I don't see Brunson winning that fight. Tough to count him out anymore, but that matchup is truly horrific for him.

  • I would like to see brunson get that izzy fight again

  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA beat a number 1 contender coward

  • Simon Phoenix out here demolishing man

  • she fine, and izzy will kill Derek

  • I feel adesanya will just walk through Brunson

  • Doesn't deserve a title shot he has beaten till who is new to that weight class Holland who isn't even top 10 and other small names. He needs to beat either vettori, Costa or Whittaker before Izzy even entertains him again that's for sure.

  • I actually rate brunson

  • Respect to Branson but isn't getting that belt I'm afraid. Good solid fighter tho and will continue to have a good career

  • good dude

  • BRUNSON NEXT TITLE SHOT 100%

  • doesn't deserve title fight, Isn't Till only ranked #7?

  • Hot take: Brunson gets title shot before end of year

    • with whittaker apparently having travel issues, I could see it.

  • Izzy vs Brunson lets go

  • Izzy knocked him out when they fought

  • 5th element is best Brunson mode 💪🏻

  • Brunson has grown on me tbh, he won't be Izzy but probs be a good fight

  • This guy never gives up - he has my respect.

    • Derek BUMSON has your respect he’s complete garbage

  • Not gonna lie, might be a good test for Izzy if he beats Rob

    • @WHEALTH Yeah ya never know man, crazier things have happened in mma

    • @Krikiller Agreed on your points, I just think the first fight Derek underestimated Izzy and thought he can strike with him also, it he goes with the mindset of only wrestling, it could be a tough fight but still see Izzy winning

    • @WHEALTH Jan is a totally different animal, he was able to hang with Izzy on the feet and offer threats in the standup, so he could shoot with well timed shots that were mixed in. Brunson will have to shoot pretty much constantly from bell to bell, as he has absolutely nothing for Izzy on the feet. Panic shots like that are much easier to defend, which is why Derek landed 0 of 7 takedown attempts in that first fight. I think Brunson 100% deserves the shot, but Izzy is just stylistically a nightmare matchup for Derek.

    • @CaliTeeDee Yeah first time they fought, I had Izzy easily, after seeing the Jan fight, I'm a little worried about a pure wrestler so I'd say Brunson would only try to wrestle this time, still see Izzy winning in a decent fight

    • Izzy already whooped him badly lol, I can’t see it being any different

  • Helvetica and Times New Roman walk into a bar. “Get out of here!” shouts the bartender. “We don’t serve your type.”....

  • There is only two ways Brunson get the title shot instead of Cannonier. He either beats Cannonier, or Cannonier is negotiating too hard with the UFC. Izzy prefers the Cannonier fight 100%

    • @BredIN919 Izzy wont care. He already said multiple times that he wants a match with Cannonier. Brunson should call out Cannonier and the winner gets the next shot after Whittaker.

    • Brunson deserves it , he’s never gotten one in his career . He’s bringing that belt to NC

  • Agreed, he should have his shot guaranteed after Izzy vs Whittaker 2.

  • Blonde Brunson is no joke…

  • He musta forgot what happened last time

  • Sweet NORTH CAROLINA ye bitches.. dun dun dun..

  • I love to see him against Vettori or Costa

  • Robert Whittaker will smoke Brunson not the same level

  • Great performance by Brunson, deffo deserves another shot at the title, or at the very least, a fight for no1 contendership.

    • would be his first ever title shot

  • Luckiest victory I've seen in MMA in a decade. He was getting finished against the side of the cage by Darren till and made one last exhaustive launch for a take down And caught Darren.

    • Where was the luck. Brunson smashed him

    • nothing lucky about it, Darren was 100% defenseless in the grappling and Derek took advantage of it to batter and eventually submit Darren. Darren was able to control like 2 minutes of the fight with his striking, other than that Derek dominated him.

    • A wins a win

  • Lasagna is gonna whoop Brunson again, no doubt

  • I don't care if Izzy/Whittaker beat him again. But Brunson deserves the title shot. Cannonier can fight someone else as title eliminator.

    • @Matt Savage I’m not claiming Brunson would beat Izzy far from it. I’m just saying if vettori got it off Holland then Brunson can get it off till. However I don’t think Brunson should wait it out Izzy vs rob still doesn’t have a date and we likely aren’t going to see the fight till early next year if Brunson decides to wait out he could be waiting as much as April May to get the shot I think he should fight someone else in the mean time.

    • @matthew 10805 And look what happened to vettori wasn't even in the fight. Good luck waiting a year brunson will be very nearly 39 by then easy work again for Izzy.

    • @Matt Savage if vettori can beat Holland and get a title shot then Brunson can get one off beating till.

    • @R66 Na same as bumson

    • No he doesn't, he deserves a fight for the title shot.

  • The only thing stopping Brunson fighting for a title shot is the fact he’s already lost to the champ, but since then he’s only going up skill wise, him vs Izzy 2 would be interesting…

  • He would never be a champion his job is to be a ladder 🪜to up coming fighters like Israel Till blow his chance

  • This guy kick the fook out of shabazyen lmao

  • I'm so sad for Till I think his body and mind are letting him down is it just me or did Darren look podgey a little flabby 😔

    • @Shades ASMR hopefully he will I will support regardless 🇬🇧👍

    • @ElSmoosher of le FANGIRLS He will be back, but deffo needs to make some vast ground improvements

    • @Shades ASMR good recall that actually makes sense. I totally forgot about that, i just wanted him to win so much and reach the potential I think he has.

    • I said he needs to put on muscle, but someone reminded me he broke his collarbone some months ago, maybe couldn't train strength

  • He needs one more guy Imo

  • The living embodiment of never give up

  • fair enough

  • Brunson is smarter than he lets on, really hopes he gets a chance at the title

    • @The Fantom Whittaker wins

    • @Alex / if he gets knocked out so be it. He deserves the opportunity to fight for the title after whitaker gets beat by israel again.

    • To get kod by Izzy

  • Respect from the uk

  • Brunson vs cannonier I’ve got Brunson

  • Jesus Christ. Robert Whittaker is literally the ONLY person who deserve the fight with Izzy. Izzy wanted to fight Till and Jared Cannonier and Whittaker beated them BOTH and beated Till before Brunson. Then Whittaker beats Gastelum. At this point, just Give Whittaker Brunson, so Brunson is out of the way. It will be EZ for Whittaker.

    • Dude relax, Adesanya Whittaker was already set for Nov 6th in MSG, but got pushed back to early 2022

    • I beated my meated earlier

  • Brunson needs one more fight like jared then fight izzy or rob

    • Nah let him sit out he’s older and has done enough work. Jared needs to fight the winner of costa vs vettori

  • BUMSON

  • Brunson dese4rves a shot. he is sharper than ever

    • @Bonny Mathebula Yes he's on a good win streak but I still think he needs to beat Cannonier or Costa before he gets another shot at Izzy.

    • @jimmyconway88 who have those guys beaten in the top 5 since their loses? There's no logic in your question. Brunson has derailed 3 hype trains. he's the only top 5 guy with 5 win streak. After Robert, it's Brunson.

    • Still get knocked out by Izzy 😂

    • Who has he beat in the top 5 to justify a title shot? I'd like to see him fight the winner of Costa v Vettori or Cannonier next.

  • Maybe even Vettori or costa in case someone pulls out.

    • Vettori would fight even with a missing arm

    • Vettori never pulls out so Brunson vs Vettori would be cool, boring but cool

  • Boring fighter

    • @Matrix Deprogrammed he didn’t lay on Darren he battered him and then strangled him😂😂 if u wanna see boring watch Till vs Gastelum of Wonderboy

    • Lay and pray 🙏

  • So adesanya just gonna lap the division lol

    • @SnakeDiet Jan has nothing to do with the middleweight division

    • @SnakeDiet yea that knockout was brutal 😟

    • Yeah Supreme Polish Power was to much for Adonesanya.

  • Rephrases the title "I really want to get knocked out by the Champion in the first round again. I deserve it"

  • Respect brunson hes been a gate keeper for a long time and still grinding but i feel cannoier Bobby knuckles and izzy a just too far ahead of the rest

    • @Matrix Deprogrammed cannoier has better take down defense than till he will light brunson up on the feet brunson want to only go to ground no other threat

    • @Big Mutha Focker Izzy wont accept brunson hes already beat him easily and brunson is only hoping to land take downs just like the first time

    • Jared won against a guy ranked lower than Till. Brunson is on a 5 fight win streak. Jared also just lost to Whittaker. Brunson definelty deserves the winner of Izzy and Whittaker

    • Brunson beats Canonier.

  • Derek sure is a likeable chap.

    • He's grown on me, I made the mistake of not taking him seriously for quite awhile now. But the man's a master at derailing hype trains, only the best of the best get past him. Dude hasn't got a boring personality either.

  • Brunson deserves the title fight over Cannonier!

    • Cannonier himself said he'd fight the winner vs this fight so he's not saying he'd sit out for a title shot

    • @Michael Wang Every Brunson/Cannonier argument is for the next shot after Whittaker. No one is arguing that they should get it over Whittaker. Izzy - Whittaker 2 is already in the works they just don't know when with all the quarantine restrictions going on.

    • Yeah, he get KOd again

    • @Fishburne -_- Izzy's coach was saying some bullshit about skipping Whittaker so I wasn't sure

    • ​@Michael Wang Whittaker vs Izzy 2 is already confirmed, no?

  • Brunson is a nice guy. Give him a shot at the title.

  • Um no thanks

  • I think he fights the winner between Strickland vs lukehold that wud be good if he can win that to face Izzy if he really

  • Dude will never get the belt while Adesanya has the belt, period.

  • I want to see Derek fight for the title next too.

    • Alex / he’d batter the skinny clown just like till . Izzy next

    • Het get kod again

    • Whittaker first

  • Blonde Brunson will get picked apart once again by adesanya, he’s gonna start overlapping these foos in the division just how kamaru usman is doing in his.

  • Unfortunately for him izzy is still champ, as long as izzy champ he’ll never touch that belt

    • @Husnain Manzoor I don’t think they are miles ahead of Jared tbh he is almost there

    • @Max Shirinov agree, and izzy vs brunson rematch doesnt sound ppv draw really

    • @The Thigh yeah man, Brunson vs Cannonier for a title eliminator is the way to go. But it's mad how whittaker and Adesantya are miles ahead of the rest

    • 💯

    • @The Thigh I think the UFC will match him up with Jared.. that’s the fight to make, waiting doesn’t always work out

  • Hope he get the shot next!

  • Till was ranked ahead of Gastelum, so Brunson should be ahead of Canonnier now. Especially with a dominant performance like that. If he's willing to wait for it, I do think Brunson has earned it. Heinisch, Holland, Shabazayan, Till - that's better than the run most of the others are on in the top except Robert.

  • Super Saiyan brunson is a new mythical fighter

  • I'm waiting for the reaction of the two clowns who does the preview with bisping.

  • Strong eye contact from Brunson here 😂

    • He might be on no fap

    • @AndGuo I didn't mean it like that lol. What i meant was his eye contact was very intense. He barely took his eyes off her at all. It was funny.

    • I didn't see anything that would gave him a hard time maintain strong eye contact

  • Blonde brunson is undefeated

    • until issy slaps him up

    • brunson got his head kicked in by izzy, cry

    • I love that during one of the interviews before the fight Till said that he would be fighting not just any Brunson but Blonde Brunson with a straight serious face.

    • @Conor he was blonde years ago i swear

    • @Conor 💯

  • Till spent 4 years in Brazil just to learn Portugese it seems 😒

    • Damn!!! That’s Deep… I actually thought the same thing… However he’s probably good At BJJ, but can’t wield it in the cage. Congrats to Derek on a GREAT VICTORY and Till should learn a lot from this. Plus he probably needs to apologize to Kevin Holland as well but he’ll be back, 👊🏾🇳🇬🇺🇸

    • hes lazy... makes money and is hyped by UK fans.. hes in great shape for the average dude but horrendous shape for a top fighter..

  • Izzy v Brunson 2 sounds good to me, book it Dana

    • @Austin 123 maybe, but he still deserves that rematch

    • Rip ppv's

    • Brunson will get knocked out again by Izzy, trust. Derek gets rocked pretty easily and Izzy's takedown defense is really good. Izzy will probably finish him quicker than 4:51 in the 1st round.

    • @Profile One its gonna be a tough fight for both can't wait to see it.

    • @AGENT 47 hope Whittaker beats adesanya

  • The men

  • Til is done

    • @Dom S hes a poor boxer, limited blocking and only has a 1-2. No hooks or uppercuts or bodyshots. He is a good kickboxer but barely throws his kicks. He needs to change camps, that Colon Heron lad is clearly an average coach

    • @Matt R nah the championship dream isn't dead, just the hype is dead. Homie needs an actual winstreak and earn it now like everyone else (apart of Conor), he won't be pushed by the UFC

    • He’s not done at all. He fought a world class wrestler and I just don’t know why. His last few fights are thin losses to top 5 guys, he will have a good career but the championship dream died tonight

    • Omg das raaaaycist bro!

    • @Dom S lmao

  • BUMSON

    • @Gareth Hancock thanks for the spelling lesson tubby why don't u go do some situps

    • @Goran Damianovici y’all to serious lmao it’s a joke ffs

    • @Thomas Jun win steak? Lol

    • Pass the salt

    • Hater

  • Yeah he should fight The Killa Gorilla Cannonier next see how he does then maybe a title shot whoever wins... I'm looking forward to "The angry madman Pizza eating Vettori vs Drunk off wine the night before Paulo Costa lolz...🤭🤦‍♂️🤣

    • @JON 'el picocuy' FERGUSON agree about dana will give him a title shot unless he beats jared

    • @HiddenEagle1990 there's always a no1 contenders matchup for people like brunson let's be honest the ufc won't give him a title shot easily because he's not a ppv draw at all So he has to risk it.. if he waits he will get skipped for Cannonier cause izzy was calling him out and he's active

    • Nope. Totally agree with HiddenEagle1990. Cannonier just won a match. The only reason he was in the title talks was because Izzy kept saying his name. Brunson has the longest streak out of all the top guys right now so he should be next in line for Izzy. Unless Whittaker wins and then its going to be a mess for Brunson though.

    • @Razor_Reyz Whittaker is facing Israel next, already being targeted for early next year. I'm saying title shot after Whittaker. He said he'd wait.

    • @HiddenEagle1990 Dont think he will, Whittaker's been waiting for that rematch too & has come off some pretty impressive wins so yeah maybe a Whittaker vs Brunson next winner gets title shot....

  • Dreamer

  • Knew till would bottle it

    • @Matrix Deprogrammed exactly what I was saying. His striking is too predictable and basic.

    • Same. He needs a new team and a win asap to stay relevant

    • He’s way to basic only comes with the 1,2 and doesnt put combos together and doesnt kick enough either he could have done some serious leg damage if he did what he did in the last round from the beginning.

    • his just not good enough

    • @Sam Kevin lee approved
