JON ANIK: From Wilmington, North Carolina, number 8 in the world, Derek Brunson.

HOST 1: Derek Brunson was looking for a big fight. How do I know? Because he kept very politely calling me out on Twitter. Well, here it is. He got his wish.

JON ANIK: 185, the official weight for Derek Brunson.

HOST 1: It's a rematch with Jacaré. A rematch that happened five years ago. But I feel Brunson's a different fighter this time, so it's going to be an interesting one.

HOST 3: Oooh, this is going to be intense.

HOST 1: There you go, Brunson.
