UFC Fight Night 116: Saturday's Card Loses Felipe Arantes-Luke Sanders

Luke Rockhold to GSP

While Canelo-GGG ended in a somewhat freaky draw, the fights at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Pittsburgh weren't living it up to the judges.

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.

Former UFC middleweight champion Rockhold went one-on-one with former two-division WSOF title holder David Branch.

Rockhold finishes Branch in Round 2! After breaking, Branch found some success on the feet, tagging Rockhold with a number of punches as the former champ backpedaled. He pressed Rockhold against the fence momentarily. Rockhold recovered and the two broke off. The overhand right was a threat from David Branch as he looked to tag Rockhold. Reversing, Rockhold used an over-under approach to control Branch. Rockhold, meanwhile, continued to mix up kicks, with leg kicks and a jumping front face kick late in the round. He couldn't get much action going and Branch easily took round one. Branch caught a kick and landed a right hand. After pinning his opponent up against the cage, he brought proceedings to the ground, transitioned to full mount and took his back. He dropped some ground-and-pound.
