Unbeaten in 14 straight bouts now, including two victories at Dana White’s Contender Series and UFC victories against Gadzhi Omargadzhiev, Armen Petrosyan and Makhmud Muradov, Borralho called for a 185-pound clash with Derek Brunson next.
“I heard Derek Brunson wants to fight,” Borralho said in his post-fight interview. “I called him out two fights ago and he said, ‘Oh, you go do two more fights and then we can talk about it.’ Now I did two more fights, I eliminated two more guys, so what about our dance now, Brunson?”
