Check out the UFC Auckland video highlights of the #8 ranked Derek Brunson crushing Daniel Kelly.
The co-main event for UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Hunt witnessed the #8 middleweight Derek Brunson run through the #15 ranked middleweight Daniel Kelly in front of the Auckland crowd. Brunson started with a patient approach, opposed to his usual berzerker style, and when he saw his opening, Brunson uncorked a thumping left cross that sent Kelly crashing to the canvas. Brunson followed up with some academic ground strikes, and the referee stepped in to rescue Kelly.
Check out Tim Burke’s play-by-play of Derek Brunson’s destruction of Daniel Kelly:
Round 1 – Brunson pawing with the jab. He kicked Kelly right in the knee brace. Landed to the same spot again. Kelly trying to close the distance. Brunson with a double jab and a huge straight right! Kelly is down and Brunson pounds him out. Wow.
Derek Brunson defeated Daniel Kelly by KO (strikes), round 1
