David Branch will fight at UFC 230. However, it won’t be against the ranked competition he desired. Instead, it will be against a divisional newcomer.
With Brach’s (22-4 MMA, 4-3 UFC) originally scheduled opponent Ronaldo Souza shifted to the co-main event against Chris Weidman, the former two-division WSOF champ will now meet Jared Cannonier (10-4 MMA, 3-4 UFC) in a middleweight bout.
MMAjunkie verified the change with a person close to the situation following a report from ESPN.com. The person requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an official announcement.
