“I just feel like that’s what I should do. Sometimes I get angry that I still haven’t received the title. But hey, I’m still here,” Brunson told reporters, including Cageside Press on Wednesday.

“That is the best fight for the UFC.”

“I just want to win. If I’m ultimately going to win Michael Bisping’s title, I just have to get out here, keep winning, keep my title. And get ready,” Brunson said.

“He didn’t do anything that I hadn’t seen before,” Brunson said.
“He’s a tough guy, he’s very aggressive, he’s here to fight.”
