New, 1 comment

Derek Brunson, previously ranked the # 1 amateur middleweight in the Carolinas by MMA For Real's rankings last month, made a successful transition to the pro ranks at this evening's Carolina Fight Promotions card in Wilmington. Brunson hardly broke a sweat in defeating John "Big Dog" Bryant (1-4) by rear naked choke submission at 52 seconds of the 1st round. Brunson was a 3 time NCAA Division 2 All-American wrestler. Congratulations to Derek!
