A middleweight clash between Derek Brunson and Ronny Markes has been scheduled for UFC on FUEL TV 10. Brazilian website Tatame first reported the prospective matchup.
Former Strikeforce middleweight Derek Brunson made a successful UFC debut by defeating Chris Leben at UFC 155. While the bout was less than thrilling, Brunson took the fight on less than two weeks notice.
