Roman Dolidze claimed that Derek Brunson is out of the scheduled bout at UFC 295

Roman Dolidze himself revealed that Deren Brunson withdrew from the scheduled middleweight bout at the UFC 295 PPV event on November 11, 2023. 

Not only that but he also challenged Robert Whittaker or Jared Cannonier to take Brunson’s place at UFC 295 by posting a tweet. You can check his tweets below. 

Roman Dolidze is coming off a unanimous decision loss against Marvin Vettori at UFC 286 earlier this year. This loss also broke his four-fight winning streak. His most recent win came against Jack Hermansson via a second-round TKO in December 2022. 

On the other hand, Derek Brunson is on a two-fight losing streak. He lost his recent two matches against Dricus du Plessis and Jared Cannonier. He was hoping to make a comeback in a bout against Dolidze. 

Now, it remains to be seen who will replace Brunson at UFC 295 and whether Cannonier or Whittaker will accept Dolidze’s challenge to a fight at this PPV event. 

UFC 295 will be headlined by Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic Heavyweight Championship bout.
