He needs to get full camps in...
Following his win over Lorenz Larkin at UFC 177, Derek Brunson talked about his desire to return to Greg Jackson's camp in the future for his UFC career. Brunson opted to train at home to be with his daughters over the summer after his loss to Yoel Romero at UFC Fight Night 35 last January. Below are some highlights.
Brunson on wanting to return to Greg Jackson's camp: "I need to get back out to Greg Jackson's. He cornered me (Saturday), but I stayed home for this training camp so I could be with my daughters during the summer time. I just need to get back out there and get full camps in. I was definitely a little rusty out there, considering I haven't fought since January and I had a broken jaw. So that played a factor in my performance tonight. I just need to keep getting better – that's it."
Brunson on his loss to Romero: "I had an exciting fight last time – I won ‘Fight of the Night.' But unfortunately, I left with a loss and a broken jaw. Coming into this fight, I definitely wanted to finish strong. I owed the fans a better fight and I owed the UFC a better fight. The UFC is the toughest, but you go out there and get a win and get it done, and then do better next time."
