Websites for betting favor Derek Brunson to beat Dan Kelly when they face each other at UFC Fight Night 110 on Sunday, June 11th at the Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. However, Kelly would sooner get Brunsoned out there in the middle of nowhere than lose face in front of his friends. You know. Brunsoned. To be up a creek without a paddle. To have the world in the palm of your hand and then blow it. lt’s a figure of speech. ‘’Machine Gun’ Kelly is getting a second wind after suffering his first career loss to Sam Alvey at UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Thatch on 10 May 2015 in Adelaide , Australia. The 39 year old has won the next four straight fights following that loss.

Meanwhile, Brunson has lost his last two straight fights, the most recent of which was a loss to Anderson Silva – who is even older than Kelly. Before that, ‘The Law’ had won four in a row (also known as the Captain’s Mistress), and started his career on a nine-fight winning streak. He is currently 16-5 while Kelly is 13-1. All things considered, it kind of begs the question of why is Kelly the underdog in this fight, but as it turns out the Australian judoka has grown accustomed to websites for betting sort of taking him for granted. “Well, I look really bad at the moment,” he told Bloody Elbow. “Look at all the gray hair. I’m not exactly chiseled. I don’t move with a lot of fluidity, so I’m sure they look at me and go, ‘ugh, he’s not going to win; it’s going to end at some point.’ It probably will [end] at some point, but hopefully not just yet.”

Nonetheless, Kelly does not feel as if the underdog tag does take the pressure off because “I’m the one who puts the most pressure on myself… the pressure I put on myself is what is the most important, and that gets worse and worse every fight. It’s good to be making some people some money, and I’m sure I’ll be the underdog again against Derek Brunson.” Well, you can bet on it (pun intended). Kelly does have a trick up his sleeve. Kelly’s camp has been picking Robert Whittaker’s brain – metaphorically, not like Anthony Hopkins did to Ray Liotta – the Courier Mail reports. ‘The Reaper’ beat Brunson by TKO at UFC Fight Night 101 on September 17, 2016 in Texas. Brunson brought that upon himself, chasing Whittaker inside the steel cage and setting himself up for a head kick 1:41 into the first round. In Dino’s words, “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head?”

Websites for betting may be deceptively favoring the younger guy here, but the middleweight division seems to be an old man’s game – so much so that they should change its name to the middleage division. Brunson is 33, Rashad Evans is 37, Anderson Silva is 42, division champion Michael Bisping is 37, and Yoel Romero – who has also defeated Brunson – is 40.
