Posted by UFC RSS on 15 September 2017 - 06:14 PM

David Branch admits that his return to the UFC in May after a six-year absence was akin to being in “a different fish tank” than he was while a two-division champion in the World Series of Fighting promotion, but once the Octagon gate closed and he faced off against Krzysztof Jotko, “It was business as usual.”Business as usual for the New Yorker means winning, and after three rounds with Jotko at UFC 211, Branch emerged with a split decision victory that lifted his unbeaten streak to 11.

#820628 Drakkar Klose Gets Beat In The Gym, Not In The Octagon

Posted by UFC RSS on 05 July 2017 - 03:38 PM

Drakkar Klose has to ponder the question for a little bit. That’s understandable, considering that it was almost seven years ago since the last time he lost in competition. “It was an exhibition fight,” he recalls. “The guy was like 230 pounds and no one wanted to go against him, so I said, ‘I’ll fight him.’ And he pretty much just laid on me.”Klose has not had such issues since competing on more level playing fields in the 155-pound lightweight division, and when fighting equally matched foes, he’s unbeaten, making his Friday bout against ...
