Well guys, it's official, Derek Brunson is already a star. The dude has stalkers!
How many people can say they've had to get a number that resides half a day's driving distance away from where they reside to keep the groupies away? I'll tell you how many, one. And that's Derek Brunson.
On a serious note, after talking to Derek I get the impression that the man is very humble, which is a good thing. The worst thing a guy could do is come across as cocky before going mainstream.
Derek isn't willing to give a lot of secrets away just yet, but one things for sure, he's a threat to anyone at 185 in the Strikeforce.
We still don't know a whole lot about Derek but as time progresses, his fame increases and more sites start ringing his phone 24/7 for interviews I'm sure we'll get a clearer picture.
What we do know is Derek is a devoted family man. He has two adorable daughters and his desire to succeed in the sport is based on a necessity to make the life of his children as good as it can be, and that's something you got to respect.
Also, because Derek doesn't drink his preferred activity when going to the clubs is to sit in a dark corner and creep on people. Now that I said that it sounds like Derek might be a stalker himself.
Check out the interview. My mic is a little loud but whatever, its all good. Oh, and before I forget, Derek needs sponsors!!! Y'all hit this man up and put some bread in his pockets.
