It didn’t take long for David Branch to get things done on Saturday.
The result? He has a shiny new belt to keep him company today. Branch (14-3) tapped out Jesse Taylor (27-10) in the first round of the WSOF 10 main event on Saturday night to take home the promotion’s inaugural middleweight title.
Taylor looked for an early finish with a guillotine, but Branch expertly reversed and latched on a D’Arce choke.
Above, check out the highlights of the fight, which took place at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The main card aired on NBC Sports Network.
