Id be stoked for that!  Yoel did take alot of smacks to the head just recently, concussion protocol may be in effect.

If we can get a finish it'll be an epic fight.  I just think Luke is gonna be to patient, like Thompson against Woodley patient.  Its been awhile for him and his ex is thotting it up all around the MMA world.  I just don't want to see a middleweight decision for the main.

Rockhold would smash Branch. First or second round TKO.

I agree, I just hope he does.  Branch can drag some fights out. I may leave and beat the rush to the bar if that happens

Branch already beat Jotko in his return to the company. And yes, he was with the UFC previously.

Yeah I looked him up, loses to Rumble, Paul Harris, and the other Harris. Did not recognize his face though. I'll guess I'll see how good he is in this fight.

He's a WSOF 2 division world champion... held consecutively.  Make no mistake about it he's looking to replicate that feat.

 

Rumble missed weight by 10 pounds and played touch butt for 3 rounds so it doesn't count.  They are trying to hold him back by throwing him against the best heavyweight in the middleweight division.  King David will just jump divisions where it's an old fat man, a cokehead criminal and a bunch of cans.  When he hoists that belt he'll drop back down for a champ vs champ superfight.

 

Either that or he'll just go to Bellator when his contract expires.

Branch is gonna beat Rockhold

 

Branch has more to prove since his last fight he knows was a dud, hes getting the jump up in competition that he wanted from the beginning and this is mixed with Rockholds mind still messed up from always being injured, the Bisping loss, losing his chick to a mid tier brazilian fighting for Bellator, his contract issues, being out for so long, etc

 

Also, Branch went 3 rounds with Rumble. Only time he got ko'ed was that slam from way back.

 

Branch sending Rockhold to start off the main card for a future card

Rockhold explains why he's fighting Branch. Says Anderson refused him at the Aldo vs Holloway card and they couldn't sign Mousasi for either of the July ppv cards. Wanted Romero in a 5 round fight but Romero wanted 3 rounds
