Anderson Silva hasn’t won a fight since 2012, but Derek Brunson describes the losses as “weird events."

First, Silva was kncoked out by Chris Weidman after taunting him a bit too long. Then he broke his leg in the Weidman rematch, and nearly KO’d Michael Bisping at Fight Night London.

All that considered, Brunson isn’t buying any of the talk the “The Spider” has declined. He also had some things to say about getting back into the title hunt, the fact that no other fighters are calling him out, and re-starting his knockout streak.
