2. Luke Rockhold Is Finally Back
No one knew what to expect when former champ Rockhold returned to the octagon on Saturday night. Coming off of an over year-long layoff following his knockout loss to Michael Bisping (the man who took his belt), there was a multitude of questions regarding the former champs mindset and confidence going into his main event fight with former WSOF middleweight and light heavyweight champ David Branch.
After a shaky first round, Rockhold finally hit his stride in round two, ultimately finishing Branch with strikes from back mount to earn a much-needed win.
Luke Rockhold is back, ladies and gentlemen. A rematch with “Jacare” Souza or a fight with Yoel Romero seems like the perfect matches for Rockhold at the moment, as a win over either man would put him in line for a shot at the belt he lost.
