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

http://www.espn.com/...-stripped-title

Basically, Romero and Anderson ducked him.

 

Im not surprised. Dude is a horrible match up for both.

Branch has gotten much better since Harris slammed him through the canvas but he's going to get pieced up by Luke

if Rockhold can lose to the Count by ko, he can lose to anybody-

the odds -450 & layoff are enough for me to try Branch @ +350

More imprinted in my mind is how 38 year old Louis Taylor was beating that dude up before Branch got lucky.
   
Luke Rockhold will embarrass this dude.

 it's difficult to gauge both fighters right now, this fight allows the ufc to see where they are;

I believe the present odds reflect their past & are more about reputation & who they've fought -

Branch hasn't lost since '12 (Rumble/Titan @ catchweight 185 was ud)

Which Rockhold shows up after the ko loss & layoff ...

Easy win for Rockhold.  One more win after this and he gets his title shot and belt back.

Its HARD to understand when a former champ (rockhold) refuses to fight a better fighter in Romero(#2 contender) at UFC 216 in VEGAS instead hes fighting a couple of weeks sooner against a #9 guy in pitsburg?????????????????? Your argument holds little weight...

 

 

Yoel is higher ranked...why would he need to downgrade to a crappy fox card to fight a guy lower ranked than him?

vert you goddamn idiot this is the final time that I will explain this to you

 

UFC 216 = a ppv that NO ONE IS ORDERING ASIDE FROM CLEGG, CASH, ME AND MOTOWNS FAMILY

 

Fight Night = FREE TV for everyone to watch

 

Now with that said he requested Yoel fight him in Pittsburgh because he wanted 5 rounds which is what main events are, so your boy Yoel ducked Rockhold because he wanted 3 rounds. Branch stepped up and now the fight is made while Yoel is stuck waiting for a 3 round fight

 

Explain how Rockhold is losing out here?? Rockhold isnt getting paid any differently. So it obviously makes more sense to fight on free tv for possible millions compared to 200-300k at best on ppv. GO BACK TO SCHOOL VERT!!!!

the fox cards are for fighteres struggling to obtain draw power or up and comers....Yoel is neither. Its much better on a fighters resume to fight the #2 guy in vegas and win than fight some nobody on a card intended for poor hilillys to watch.

Why not a 3 round fight thats a actual fight? Yoel would fight to finish him via KO.
