Dayne Fox broke down all this action in his post-fight analysis post.
For all of you who wrote off Derek Brunson as nothing more than a gatekeeper to the top ten of the middleweight division, he just gave you all a big middle finger, dominating Darren Till with positioning and ground and pound over the first two rounds before finding a RNC finish in the third at UFC Vegas 36 today. Well... perhaps I should say Brunson gave us a big middle finger given I didn’t see this late career surge, but the bottom line is Brunson is a legit middleweight contender at 37.
Zane Simon and Eddie Mercado also discussed all these results on the Bloody Elbow 6th Round Post-Fight show.
