UFC veteran Derek Brunson isn’t fazed by any attempts of trolling by UFC Vegas 36 co-headliner Darren Till.
UFC middleweight contender Derek Brunson knows he’ll have to fight through challenges outside of the octagon as well as inside of it leading up to his UFC Vegas 36 showdown with Darren Till. During his UFC Vegas 36 pre-fight press conference, Brunson appeared unfazed by any attempts at mental warfare from Till.
Winner of four straight bouts, Brunson enters UFC Vegas 36 with plenty of momentum as he faces a tough challenge in Till. Despite losing three of his last four bouts, Till remains in the middle of the UFC middleweight title picture and has been a target of middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.
Aside from what’s on the line inside the cage, Brunson isn’t worried about Till’s trash talk getting into his head during fight week.
“It’s week, it’s business time,” Brunson said. “It’s not personal for me at all. The fight with [Kevin Holland] was more serious but this one is more fun and games. The goal is to not be the next person that’s going to be a meme after this fight.”

Brunson, a mainstay in the UFC’s middleweight division who is coming off arguably his most impressive performance against Kevin Holland, still has title ambitions and a potential rematch on his mind against Adesanya.
Brunson’s fight with Till is surely one of the best fights to wrap up the summer, and Brunson looks to put on a show and prove why he’s a top contender at 185 pounds.
