UFC Looking To Book Derek Brunson vs. Jack Hermansson For December 3rd

Ranked middleweights Derek Brunson and Jack Hermansson as part of UFC’s winter schedule.

UFC is reportedly aiming to pair up Brunson and Hermansson for their December 3rd event, per a report from Ariel Helwani. If the fight can be finalized, it will join a card that doesn’t have a set location currently.

Both middleweight names have hung around the top of the division in recent years.

Hermansson has possibly earned a gatekeeper status as of late, losing against some high-up challengers but also ending the upward climbs up many prospects.

He handed Chris Curtis his first UFC loss in July, prevailing in a stand-up battle to earn a unanimous decision victory. That fight put Hermansson back into the win column after suffering a five-round loss to Sean Strickland earlier in the year.

Brunson will be appearing for the first time since his recent campaign for a title fight was put on hold. His strong five-fight winning streak suddenly came to an end in February, suffering a second-round finish loss against Jared Cannonier at UFC 271.

It is not known whether a fight between Brunson and Hermansson would serve as the main event for the card, or if it is simply just part of the lineup. Here’s a look at all of the fights that have been reported for December 3rd thus far:

Bout 4: Tracy Cortez (10-1) vs. Amanda Ribas (11-3) (Flyweight)

Bout 3: Matheus Nicolau (18-2-1) vs. Matt Schnell (16-7) (Flyweight)

Bout 2: Eryk Anders (14-7) vs. Kyle Daukaus (11-3) (Middleweight)

Bout 1: Derek Brunson (23-8) vs. Jack Hermansson (23-7) (Middleweight)
