Anyone else want to see this? Probably the two best up and comers at mw.
This is the match I want to see, I think Brunson's ability to mix it up and take the fight to the ground would be the deciding factor.
I really like Whittaker and I believe he has the toughness to beat Brunson. Would probably go to decision though.
It's funny you propose this match up. I literally just thought to myself that Brunson lunges forward with his chin high too often. He hasn't met any talented strikers yet, if he faces someone like Lyoto, Vitor, Rockhold, Hall, or Whittaker it would be lights out. Whittaker/Lyoto probably being his worst match ups considering their accuracy and TDD.
Great matchup. Hopefully it materializes.
