Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Derek Brunson put on a dominant display at last weekend’s UFC Fight Night 119. For the night’s main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida made his big octagon return after being away for two years. However, things did not go Machida’s way at UFC Fight Night 119.
With a dominant display, Brunson earned a first round knockout victory over “The Dragon.” Directly after the match, the fighter called out another former champion. This time, Brunson wants to take on Luke Rockhold.
However, it would appear that the former middleweight champion is not quite as interested. Responding to Brunson’s call out over Twitter, Rockhold stated:
“I got two guys in my sights & they both knocked your ass out. You’re not on my level & you’re not worth my time.”

Brunson has been finished by Ronaldo Souza, Yoel Romero and current interim champion Robert Whittaker.
