Derek Brunson is currently the #4 ranked fighter in UFC’s middleweight division. As he continues to try and climb the ranks towards championship gold, Derek has always been vocal about his opinions outside of the Octagon. His latest statement came as he took issue with an event meant to celebrate LGBTQ pride.

UFC fighters have been outspoken about LGBTQ issues recently. Flyweight fighter Jeff Molina recently clapped back after being criticized for wearing pride-themed shorts. Derek Brunson went in a different direction.

Brunson shared photos from an event called “Drag The Kids To Pride” in Dallas. A local nightclub encouraged parents to bring their kids for a drag show on Saturday morning. Derek thought it was a little too much.

“This is bit much. Children at a provocative drag show… Can we protect our children more in today’s society. Children don’t need to be at strip clubs, or any provocative show throwing money. SMFH … read the message on the board in the background…

‘It’s not gonna lick itself’ sign, throwing dollars, twerkin in splits right in front of kids. Search the event to see more. And there’s nothing against the LGBTQ community. It’s more about protecting kids, their minds aren’t mature enough for these types of behaviors.”

Derek Brunson went on to compare the event to allowing children into a strip club. He said he has no issue with the LGBTQ community. Brunson just believes such provocative content is too much for young minds to understand.
