Derek Brunson Knows He Can Beat Robert Whittaker

Last year, Derek Brunson squared off with hard-hitting Aussie Robert Whittaker and it didn’t exactly go his way.

He came out like a man possessed, desperately wanting to get his fifth knockout in a row and the title shot that would…

“I LIKE TO BE AGGRESSIVE, I LIKE TO FINISH FIGHTS. BUT I’VE BEEN DOING A BETTER JOB OF FINDING THAT BALANCE. I’M A VERY SMART GUY ALSO, WHEN IT COMES TO LEARNING HOW TO BE MORE STRATEGIC AND NOT PRETTY MUCH DESTROY YOUR HAND IN ONE FIGHT. I THINK THE ONE FIGHT THAT COST ME THE MOST WAS THE [ROBERT] WHITTAKER FIGHT WHEN I WAS SUPER AGGRESSIVE, BUT YOU LOOK AT THAT FIGHT, I HAD HIM ROCKED THE WHOLE TIME. I’M SURE HE KNOWS I COULD PUT HIM AWAY ALSO, BUT YOU DON’T WANT TO PUT YOURSELF IN THOSE FIFTY-FIFTY POSITIONS. LET YOUR SKILLS BE ON SHOW. I STILL WANNA KEEP MY AGGRESSIVE WAYS AND LET MU SKILLS BE ON DISPLAY.”
