With two guys on the streaks that they are on, you don’t have to be an MMA Nostradamus to predict that the hell was going to go down: They gon’ bang, bro. What you may have no foreseen is Derek Brunson running toward Robert Whittaker like he was trying to catch butterflies in a meadow only they were hard ass motherfucking punches to his dome piece.
If you can remember back, it looks a lot like Stipe Miocic’s win over Fabricio Werdum. Brunson straight up wanted to come out with his fifth knockout in a row and blast his way to a title shot but unfortunately it didn’t happen.

It was a blistering and violent couple of minutes, but eventually Whittaker caught Brunson sprinting in and put him on newborn goat legs. It was all Whittaker from there as he unleashed a devastating combo to take out Brunson and move on deeper into the elite and chaotic Middleweight division.
Check out the last ~20 hit combo that ended it all.
