Hermansson Faces Former WSOF Champ Champ at UFC Philadelphia

532

Swedish fighter Jack Hermansson (18-4) will American David Branch (22-5) at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia. The UFC revealed the bout going down on March 30 on the UFC on ESPN 2 card.

The Frontline MMA Academy fighter has won his last four out of his five bouts in the Octagon. The middleweight is coming off a dominant win over Gerald Meerschaert that he stopped with a guillotine choke in the first round at UFC on Fox 31 in December. The Oslo-based fighter won MMA Viking’s 2018 Nordic Fighter of the Year.

37-year-old Branch Next for the “Joker”

Branch held light heavyweight and middleweight titles for the World Series of Fighting. He was in the UFC back in 2010-2011, but returned with much hype after capturing both the WSOF middleweight and light heavyweight belts. He is 2-2 in his latest run in the Octagon.

Edson Barboza versus Justin Gaethje will headline the card
