DULUTH, GA (WECT) – The third time wasn't the charm for Derek Brunson as he lost his bid to improve to 3-0 in the UFC.
Brunson controlled the first two rounds against Yoel Romero. But in the third and final round, Romero turned the tables and scored a TKO stoppage victory. With the loss Brunson falls to 11-3 overall, 2-1 in the UFC.
The Hoggard graduate won't be returning to the octagon anytime soon. During the fight Brunson broke his jaw, an injury that will require surgery to repair.
