UFC Fight Night, tomorrow 11am.
At the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh for UFC Fight Night 116 with the top billing the middleweight bout between former Strikeforce and UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold, 32, and David Branch, 35. Californian- born Rockhold, has a 15 win- 3 loss record. One of those losses came in his last outing in June last year when upset by Michael Bisping after he had beaten Bisping in late 2014. Branch, a former WSOF middleweight and light- heavyweight champion has had 24 bouts for 21 wins and three losses ( but none in his last 11 outings). Among the six bouts on the main card is the heavyweight clash between Justin Ledet and Dmitriy Sosnovskiy which was scheduled earlier in the year before Ledet pulled out of the fight alleging an undisclosed injury. Officials elected to remove Sosnovskiy from the card. In turn, the UFC confirmed that Ledet was suspended for four months after testing positive for a banned substance. This fight promises to be a show- stopper. There are also five preliminaries scheduled.
