Fight Result – Dricus Du Plessis to win
Undoubtedly, we are waiting for the fiery fight between two colourful athletes, who can make the finish from nothing. But still, the age difference here is massive – 10 years. If Derek had met Dricus five years ago, he would probably have passed him. In the current realities, Du Plessis should pick up this fight, the most important thing being that he doesn’t get swollen before his time.
Preliminary review and match prediction for Derek Brunson vs Dricus Du Plessis
Derek Brunson: The One
The 39-year-old American middleweight Derek Brunson was very close to another title shot. Prior to his fight with American Jared ‘’The Killa Gorilla’’ Cannonier, the fighter was on a decent run and had a good chance of finishing his current opponent in the first round, but he was unlucky.
Derek had 31 fights in his career (23 wins, 8 losses). Fought in the cage against the best, Darren ‘’The Gorilla’’ Till, Israel ‘’The Last Stylebender’’ Adesanya, Ronaldo ‘’Jacare’’ Souza, Lyoto ‘’The Dragon’’ Machida, Robert ‘’The Reaper’’ Whittaker, Anderson ‘’The Spider’’ Silva, Yoel ‘’Soldier of God’’ Romero and others.
Derek has a decent wrestling background, and he has successfully adapted to MMA. In the standup, the athlete is also good, hard-hitting, and not lacking in technique. However, Brunson is a punched fighter (he’s knocked out six times).
