Top UFC contender manhandles Bronx native David Branch

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.

The former UFC middleweight champion, who has been out of action for over a year, returned with a punishing performance on Saturday night, as he tapped out David Branch with strikes in the second round of their main event match-up in Pittsburgh. "You don't belong here", Rockhold said while addressing St-Pierre.

Landing multiple strikes, Rockhold took Branch's back near the edge of the cage. Rockhold answered his aggression with some of his own in the second ground, where he grounded, mounted and eventually finished the Renzo Gracie-trained Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. A late takedown from Rockhold to close out the round saw the momentum shift, and also gave everyone an indication what was to come next. "I think anybody in this sport, once I get on top of them, they're not going to last long". A right hand landed for Branch and he kept the pressure on. Now I'm coming for that belt. But Perry wasn't convinced that was the only concern.

"I worked my butt off for this", Perry said. "The kudos go to my opponent, who took the fight on three days' notice". The former champion countered with a series of kicks to the body, but Branch didn't back away from his aggressive strategy. After the victory, he declared himself to be "a problem" in that division and called out former lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos, who recently moved up to welterweight.

Gregor Gillespie had the lone true submission win of the night, locking in an arm-triangle choke to defeat Jason Gonzalez in the second round. The two stood up and battled to a bloody, non-stop stalemate in the first before Gillespie prevailed on the mat. Hall was knocked down and bloodied by Jotko in the first, stopped him with an overhand right in the second round.
