Derek Brunson has rewatched his fight. He knows it wasn't his best performance but he feels he did the best he could with the notice he was given.

Winning on his UFC debut against a UFC veteran will quite possibly lead to bigger things.

Brunson posted the following message to all of his fans:

He has absolutely nothing to apologize for, took out a massive challenge in Leben and did it dominantly for a short notice fight....not one round did Leben win.

He didn't win me as a fan with that fighting style. Leben was shocking though.

Nothing to apologize would rather him step up
Even if it was boring. Than having the whole fight scratched off the card.

Lebin's the one to blaim. He had a whole year to prepare.

Thank god for Miller vs. Lauzon.

Ok i'll say it.

Brunson had Leben in full mount and didn't throw a punch.

Fair play for stepping up and winning, but come on.......
