January 15, 2014

The countdown to UFC Fight Night 35 is almost over as fans worldwide are getting ready for the epic bouts that will take place in the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia tonight. Featuring a stacked fight card full of top caliber UFC athletes, Fight Night 35 will not disappoint.  As the level of corporate sponsorship in the Octagon continues to increase, fans look to see which companies are supporting their favorite athletes.  The ever prevalent Denver based sports nutrition powerhouse, MusclePharm, has been sponsoring UFC fighters for 5 years and backs only the best fighters stepping foot inside the Octagon. Tonight, MusclePharm is proud to sponsor Lorenz Larkin and VFD sponsored athlete Derek Brunson.


Representing Jackson Winkeljohn’s MMA,  VFD Marketing athlete Derek Brunson has one thing on his mind: winning. With hopes of a title shot in 2014, he is prepared to do whatever it takes to get there. Tonight, Brunson is looking to extend his already impressive winning record to 12-2 as he faces a true competitor, Yoel “Soldier of God” Romero. Among UFC fighters worldwide, Derek is truly unique. His explosiveness in the Octagon is impossible to overlook and his dedication to success is  incomparable to most UFC athletes fighting today. Reigning from Wilmington, North Carolina, at 6’1” and 186 lbs., Derek is a true middleweight powerhouse that is continuing to make a name for himself in the UFC.


Fighting just before the main event of the evening, Lorenz “The Monsoon” Larkin will face Brad Tavares as Larkin plans to dominate and add on another win to his current 14-1 fight record.  Lorenz Larkin is an absolute force inside the Octagon and is just about the most formidable of an opponent as it gets. Hailing from Riverside, California, this 5’11” 186lb. middleweight sensation represents Millennia MMA.
