It looks like Derek Brunson will be competing early in 2023, as it’s being reported that the middleweight contender will take on Dricus du Plessis in March.

Brunson (23-8) has not competed since February 2022, when he was knocked out by Jared Cannonier. The defeat snapped his five-fight winning streak.

According to a recent report from ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, sources say Brunson will face du Plessis at UFC 285 on March 4th.

Du Plessis (18-2) recently submitted Darren Till and is riding a six-fight winning streak.

Currently, Brunson is ranked #5 in the UFC’s middleweight division and du Plessis is ranked #10.
