David Branch, World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 185- and 205-pound champion, has vacated both titles and accepted an offer to return to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) after going undefeated during his four-year tenure.
Hector Lombard got Tim Boetsch, Eddie Alvarez got Donald Cerrone, Will Brooks got Ross Pearson. All champs in rival promotions who signed as champions. I wonder who David Branch will receive.
Branch is the standard bearer of how to be a dual weight champion and actually defend both titles. 3x MW and 1x LHW successful title defenses in WSOF whilst going 10-0 overall in the promotion.
I am super excited to see him back in the UFC and I hope he gets a top seven opponent straight off the bat.
Great news to have him back with the UFC. We've been losing a lot of talent to other promotions, so it's nice to get one back :)
