David Branch did well in his run in the World Series of Fighting, but come on, it was the WSOF – how good could someone be there?
Thiago Santos is a Brazilian striker who’s been knocking ’em dead lately. Given Branch’s propensity for being good and methodical at striking but not great, this could be a tough one for the American.
As expected, Santos is all confidence and leg-kicks, and he’s taking big chunks out of Branch’s calf while the jiu-jitsu black belt tries to throw them hands.
And then Branch steps in with an overhand right that catches Santos square on the chin, and Santos is out cold.
