Luke Rockhold Strikes David Branch into Submission in UFC Fight Night 116 Main Event

Luke Rockhold needed a round to knock off the rust after a 15-month layoff. Once he did, the onetime Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight titleholder zeroed in on David Branch . Rockhold struck the former two-division World Series of Fighting champion with second-round punches in the UFC Fight Night 116 headliner on Saturday at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. Branch (21-4, 3-3 UFC) tapped to strikes 4:05 into Round 2, his run of 11 straight victories at an end. Not all went according to plan for Rockhold (16-3, 6-2 UFC), who appeared for the first time since being upset by Michael Bisping at UFC 199. The 32-year-old American Kickboxing Academy star struggled to gain a foothold in the fight in the first round, as Branch met him with merciless forward pressure and had him reeling against the cage with power punches at one point. Rockhold withstood the assault and pushed the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt into the second round. He struck for a takedown with a little more than two minutes left in the frame, climbed immediately to mount and started dropping punches.
