The MMA world is anticipating another Anderson Silva fight this weekend. Anytime Silva fights, people are paying attention. Saturday he’ll be challenged by a very talented fighter in Derek Brunson. It’s a very high profile fight, and in this video, they both talk about it. Check out UFC 208 The Matchup – Anderson Silva vs. Derek Brunson.
Anderson Silva (33-8) is looking to rebound after dropping a series of matches since losing his Middleweight Title. He had a victory over Nick Diaz overturned, and ruled a no contest after both fighters failed both fight drug tests. He will find a willing opponent in Brunson, who had won five consecutive before being derailed by Robert Whittaker at UFC Fight Night 101.
Derek Brunson (16-4) was a wrestler, who transformed himself into a devastating striker. He had won five fights in a row, including four by first round knockout. He will be looking to trade hands with Silva, who when he’s on, is on a level all his own. It’s going to be a fun fight, and will serve as co-feature with Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie. Those two will meet to determine the first ever UFC women’s Featherweight champion.
