UFC middleweight contender Derek Brunson took a shot at “fat boy” Karl Roberson right after the soaring contender missed excess weight by 4.5lbs at UFC Las Vegas.
Roberson stepped on to the scale at 190.5lbs for his middleweight bout from Marvin Vettori, which is scheduled to be the co-most important function beneath the headliner between women’s flyweights Jessica Eye and Cynthia Calvillo this weekend. Both of those Eye and Roberson missed weight, making this a uncommon card the place equally the main party and co-primary celebration observed a headliner overlook their respective fat limit. In Roberson’s circumstance, it was the largest excess weight miss on a card comprehensive of them.
Back again in January, Roberson took to social media to simply call Brunson out for a battle. Roberson isn’t in the rankings whilst Brunson is a top rated-15 fighter, so he most likely saw it as an prospect to struggle anyone ranked and crack that leading-15. The UFC instead matched up Brunson from Edmen Shahbazyan, when Roberson was matched up towards Vettori.
Just after Roberson’s poor excess weight miss, Brunson took to Twitter to poke fun at the “fat boy” soon after Roberson’s earlier remark about Brunson not seeking “sauce.”
It’s possible I should’ve taken the sauce so you would not have ate it all fat boy😂 . https://t.co/upU2NKCSDo

“Maybe I should’ve taken the sauce so you would not have ate it all body fat boy”
Brunson is the No. 8 ranked middleweight in the UFC while Roberson is not any place shut to the rankings. Even so, if Roberson is capable to score the upset in excess of Vettori, he would be extremely shut to cracking the best-15. If Brunson is ready to defeat Shahbazyan in August then he will maintain his elite position in the division, but must he get rid of, that could most likely established up a fight in opposition to someone who is unranked, and Roberson could be that dude. But Roberson is heading to have to make weight if he wants a huge-identify opponent following.
Do you imagine we will see Derek Brunson struggle Karl Roberson at some position?
