Bellator middleweight champion Johnny Eblen said that he is ready to hold a fight against former UFC fighter Derek Brunson, who successfully debuted in the PFL in November.
Recall, earlier PFL was bought out by the Bellator promotion.
I would love to fight him. One thousand percent down for that. I would love to fight him. The guy has fought everybody. The who’s who in MMA, UFC veteran coming over to PFL, it would be a great matchup for me.
Brunson later responded that he was also interested in this confrontation.
Eblen last fought in September of this year against Fabian Edwards at Bellator 299. In this fight, Johnny won by knockout in the third round. Eblen has 14 wins and no losses in mixed martial arts.
In November, Brunson defeated his compatriot Ray Cooper by unanimous decision of the judges. He has 24 wins and nine losses on his record.Covington Vows To Show Fans Best Version At UFC 296 Against Edwards Cejudo And Dvalishvili To Fight On February 18 At UFC 298 McGregor Will Have His Next Bout In Spring 2024
