Derek Brunson is a Strikeforce fighter, as he was before.
On Monday, a secured spot on "The Ultimate Fighter 17" was nixed when
Zuffa was unable to get approval from Strikeforce broadcast partner
Showtime to release the fighter, Brunson's manager today told MMAjunkie.com.
Officials from Strikeforce parent company Zuffa now hope to place the
middleweight on a card planned for January, though he has yet to receive
an official booking.
