UFC Vegas 36 Highlights: Derek Brunson Taps Darren Till

Derek Brunson vs. Darren Till was everything that the UFC had advertised – a fun fight. 

The two fighters met in a bout on Saturday night (September 4, 2021) at the UFC Vegas 36 event from Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC Apex facility. Brunson got a takedown in the first round and mauled him. In the second round, Brunson went back to the takedown, but at first, Till managed to stop it in the clinch, but Brunson eventually got it.

Till started to kick more in the third round. Brunson got a takedown then full mount then Till gave up his back. Brunson locked in the rear-naked choke from the back for the win.
