Brunson beats Holland, vettori beats him on 2 week notice doing exactly the same thing and gets a title shot? I don't get it

Dude is 13-5 in the UFC. That is a solid record considering his age and how long he has been in UFC and the high quality of competition he has always faced.

Brunson's last 4 wins were very significant in the sense that all 4 of those opponents were coming off solid win streaks. Brunson stopped those 4 streaks. Gatekeeper is usually a negative term but this dude deserves his #5 ranking. If he beats Till, he deserves the title shot (Ofcourse, after Vettori and Whittaker get their shots)

Idk why people think till doesn't know how to wrestle. Y'all must've forgot his last two fights were rather grapple heavy, and whittaker mainly took till down because he had a blown out knee. He spars with heavyweights on a consistent basis. he can hold his own.

Ever since Brunson ate that humble pie from Adesanya, he really grew on me. When he doesnt put on a tough guy persona and just stays true to himself, he's very likeable. Just a simple bloke.

I feel Derrick the part of agent Carter in the Rush Hour films but he needs to stick to being an actor as I feel he might get hurt in the UFC ring. Kelvin Holland dusts him in the trilogy.

I think Derrick played a good part in Rush hour 1-3 but I think Kevin Holland KO's him in the trilogy. He should stick to being an actor as he might get hurt in the ring.

@Isolated Productions I feel in my humble opinion that Derrick was out of his depth that fight. He needs to realise this is fighting and not fighting on set for a movie, Holland gave up that fight. No doubt Derrick has potential to be a good UFC player however it may be too soon he needs a camp to train with.

First of all mate it's an octagon not a ring, secondly they have only fought once so what are you saying? Are you saying that brunson wins again the second time around then Holland beats him in a trilogy? What are you smoking?

💯💯💯The biggest crime that Brett Okamoto commits is that he is BORING...And there is nothing he can do to improve it. It is just who he is...He asks mindless questions and is uninteresting in every way. I cannot even watch the interviews that Brett conducts anymore...And I did want to hear what Brunson had to say but I just get mad every time I listen to "Boring" Okamoto. Please get rid of him ESPN MMA🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Brunson looking for those stand up fighters that have little knowledge of grabbing. Easy pickings, easy ways for a title shot. He should be asking for Paulo Costa that ranked 2nd and not look behind him to see who would be easy for him.
