Derek Brunson thought he was getting punked when informed that his fight with Ronny Markes was off. They were hours from going live before Markes got into a car accident, resulting in the fight being waved off.
“I’ll fight in two weeks,” said Brunson on FUEL TV. “I’m in shape, the best shape of my life. I had a real good training camp. I had three months to prepare for this fight and like I said, I’m in good shape.”
Markes hurt his head and back in the car crash.
Both were still paid their purse by the UFC with no return dates confirmed for either man. They were set for the Facebook part of UFC on FUEL TV 10.
