Earlier this year, David Branch made some waves when he vacated his pair of WSOF titles to return to the UFC.

His trip back was a successful one. Branch took a split decision from Krzysztof Jotko at UFC 211 in May, running his winning streak to 11. The bout was his first in the UFC since 2011. After his first stint with the promotion, he eventually caught on with WSOF and won both the middleweight and light heavyweight titles.

On Saturday, Branch (21-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) gets arguably the biggest fight of his career when he takes on former UFC middleweight champ Luke Rockhold (15-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) in the UFC Fight Night 116 main event at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. The card airs on FS1 following an early prelim on UFC Fight Pass.

Can Branch pull off the upset and insert himself into middleweight title contention? We’ll find out on Saturday. But first, check out his win over Jotko in full above.
