UFC Fight Night 116 Recap: Luke Rockhold Submits David Branch

Last night (Sept. 16), UFC Fight Night 116 took place inside the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In the main event, Rockhold took on David Branch. After a solid opening round from Branch, Rockhold took control with his wrestling and ground game. He forced a submission due to strikes in the second round.
