The two first met in November of 2016. Each gentlemen on a lengthy profitable streak and quite a few thought the winner would get a title shot. Early on, Brunson tried using to walk down Whittaker and throw every thing at him but he finally got caught and knocked out in the 1st round. Nevertheless, it was a pretty thrilling combat and it was the Combat of the Night so years soon after the reduction, he thinks the rematch really should take place.
Derek Brunson, as described, is coming off a third-round TKO get in excess of Edmen Shahbazyan in the key celebration of UFC Vegas 5. It was his third get in a row immediately after beating Ian Heinisch and Elias Theodorou by conclusion. The wins snapped his shedding skid immediately after getting knocked out by Israel Adesanya and Jacare Souza.
Robert Whittaker, meanwhile, is on a two-fight winning streak immediately after beating Jared Cannonier and Darren Till by choice. Right before that, he suffered a next-round TKO reduction to Israel Adesanya to eliminate his middleweight title.
While Whittaker is hoping to get the rematch with Adesanya, a battle towards Brunson surely tends to make perception. “The Very last Stylebender” is going up in weight and probable will not combat at middleweight right until mid to late 2021. So, if Whittaker desires to continue to be active acquiring a rematch with Derek Brunson in a Battle Night key party could be a sensible situation.
