Brunson and Till UFC
In a classic striker vs. wrestler match-up at UFC Fight Night 191 from Las Vegas, the wrestler prevailed as American Derek Brunson submitted England's Darren Till in the third round of their main event contest. Till started well scoring some hard punches in the first minute of the fight. But Brunson quickly shot in on a double leg takedown bringing Till to the mat where he controlled him landing punishing blows for much of the round.

Till spent the first half of the second round warding Brunson off in the clinch but mounting little offense until the American again took him down. The third saw Till again start strong as he caught Brunson with clean shots that appeared to have him hurt. Brunson desperately shot in on another double leg tackle once more managing to get Till to the mat. As Till wildly tried to get Brunson off him the wrestler ended up landing atop him in full mount. When Till turned to his stomach, Brunson sunk in the choke for the quick submission win, his fifth in a row since losing to current middleweight champion Israel Adesanya back in 2018.
