I'd favor Vettori but i can't say it's a lock.
It would probably be a standup fight and i think Vettori is the better striker. But i can see Brunson outmuscle Vettori to a boring decision.
I’m a Vettori Hater .... but he’d have a good chance of winning that fight
Brunson is really sloppy but he's actually ko'd good strikers before
Brunson is THE gatekeeper. A fight against him definitely determine if you are elite or not.
Same. Can't stand the guy but he is clearly Top 5 MW.
He is great against grappler because he is a superior striker, and great against people with no TDD.
But i don't see Whitaker, Gastelum, Costa and Cannonier get wrestlefuck and he is not going to outstrike them.
His next fight is going to be really hard
underrated power/striking if you watch some of his previous fights, He doesn't swing to take ppl's heads off, but when he connects they're visually wobbled usually. He's getting better fast too, wouldn't be surprised if he starts ko'ing everyone tbh. He was mainly just being careful because hollard has an insane reach.
Lol would love to see him try slug it out with Whittaker.
I favor Brunson
His standup sucks
You say that like Brunson wouldn't beat 95% or more of the MW division. Brunson is in his prime and I wouldn't be surprised if he beat anyone at MW, the thing that always held him back was his fight IQ and he's greatly improved that in the last 4-5 years.
I can see either fighter winning that fight and either fighter fighting for or winning the belt.
Neither Bunsen nor vettori will win a belt, imo. I can’t see it.
Sure he could.
It’s possible, however Brunson has more paths to victory and carries lots of power so chances are Vettori comes unstuck.
Depends which Brunson shows up. He tends to fold a lot in big fights. I could see Vettori's pressure being too much for him.
He will 100%. Brunson was gassed against Holland, after 2 rounds.
Hopefully we don't find out! I have a feeling that fight would be a big pile of dog shit...
My money definitely on Vettori
Vettori has much better cardio and his grappling is good enough to stop Brunson's TDs. He would keep it standing and pick Derek apart.
Striking and cardio are on Vettori's side for sure.
Easy decision win IMO.
Vettori's gas tank >>>> Brunson's.
Vettori UD with his better striking and endurance.
