The main event at UFC 271 features the top two middleweights in the world, but before that showdown we’ll see two other top-five fighters face off in a potential eliminator for the next title challenger.
Neither Jared Cannonier nor Derek Brunson has earned a title shot yet, but both have faced some of the division’s best, including current and former champs. And with both pushing 40, the clock is ticking. A win Saturday on a card already featuring a middleweight title bout could make for easy matching.
Middleweights Jared Cannonier (-175) vs. Derek Brunson (+ 150)
They say styles make fights, and this matchup should play out as a classic striker-versus-grappler matchup.
