UFC Pittsburgh Results: Luke Rockhold Pummels David Branch

Luke Rockhold got the best of David Branch submitting the fighter with strikes in night's main event, but not to be outdone, the undercard fighters combined for three knockouts including Mike Perry's ruthless knee against Alex Reyes.

Branch again came out the aggressor in the second, but Rockhold took him on in the grappling department with overwhelming success.

Rockhold (16-3) took Branch, who trains out of Brooklyn, to the ground in the second round and established top control, hammering blows on Branch's head and neck.

Landing multiple strikes, Rockhold took Branch's back near the edge of the cage.

The Blues are overwhelming favourites to win the game, and they are available at 4/5 odds. And their recent away record against the top six sides doesn't bode well for them.

Luke Rockhold is back, but his fight with David Branch wasn't easy.

Once he got the fight to the canvas, Rockhold immediately moved into the mount as he started raining down a barrage of punches with Branch just trying to survive.

Ever since his loss to Bisping previous year, Rockhold has been on a mission to return to the middleweight championship and he didn't lose sight of that goal after bludgeoning Branch into submission. "I came to UFC to be the champion".

"GSP, I don't know what I need to do, you want me to beat some sense into you? He did what he had to do, and I did what I had to do", Rockhold said post-fight. You don't belong here, you're gonna get crushed. "This is my fight".

The American said pre-fight that he was ready and willing to step in for St-Pierre should the Canadian not be ready and able to go at 217 - and if everything goes to plan for Rockhold, he may be the man Whittaker ends up fighting for the title in 2018.
