Derek Brunson extended his winning streak to five in an emphatic third-round submission win over Darren Till to close out UFC Fight Night 191 from the Apex facility in Las Vegas.
Brunson couldn't have asked for a better start to the fight. After Till landed some clean punches early he was able to change levels and score a takedown. From there, it was bad news for Till. Brunson rained down elbows and other ground-and-pound to get an early lead.
Till eventually worked his way back to the feet, but the damage was done. As the fight went to the second round he once again had the slight edge in the striking but wasn't able to keep things standings. After a few failed attempts, Brunson dragged him back to the mat and scored at will again.
Things really got interesting in the third round. Till knew he needed to make a change and came out aggressive. He landed a stinging left hand that seemed to shake Brunson, but the reactionary takedown turned out to be the beginning of the end for Till.
In the ensuing scramble, he slapped on the rear-naked choke and forced the tap from Till.
After the fight, Brunson wasted no time in calling out middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.
With five consecutive wins and some dominant performances since returning to his wrestling roots, he might get what he wants soon.
