Luke Rockhold’s return to action is set. 

The former UFC middleweight champion hasn’t fought since losing his title to Michael Bisping more than a year ago. The AKA fighter — who interestingly has completed the majority of his training in Flordia instead of his usual Californian base — will be looking to make a statement against the former two-weight WSOF champion.

A win for Rockhold would re-establish his credentials among the elite at 185-pounds but in Branch, a fighter who hasn’t tasted defeat in ten bouts going back to May 2012, he certainly faces a stern challenge.

Both Rockhold and Branch successfully made weight earlier today in Pittsburgh and the full results are below:


  • Luke Rockhold (185.5) vs. David Branch (186)
  • Mike Perry (170.5) vs. Alex Reyes (167.5)
  • Hector Lombard (186) vs. Anthony Smith (186)
  • Gregor Gillespie (155.5) vs. Jason Gonzalez (156)
  • Sergio Moraes (171) vs. Kamaru Usman (169.75)
  • Zu Anyanwu (263.5) vs. Justin Ledet (244.5)



  • Tony Martin (156) vs. Olivier Aubin-Mercier (155)
  • Anthony Hamilton (255.75) vs. Daniel Spitz (244)
  • Uriah Hall (186) vs. Krzysztof Jotko (185)
  • Gilbert Burns (156) vs. Jason Saggo (156)
