The UFC middleweight in a recent tweet took a dig at teenagers. Brunson, who will be fighting Jared Cannonier at UFC 271, suggested that teenagers spend their money carefully.

He wrote, “Take your teenagers to Walmart and let them spend your money. You’ll be there for 2 hours and a shopping cart full of stuff. Take your teenagers to Walmart and tell them they’re spending their own money, you’ll be in there for 5 minutes and they’re leave with 1-3 items.”
