Rockhold to return at UFC Pittsburgh.

The date is set for Rockhold’s return.

After a series of Twitter spats with UFC president Dana White. It seems that former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is returning to the octagon. Rockhold is slated to step up against former WSOF two weight champion David Branch.

Rockhold hasn’t fought since his KO loss to Michael Bisping just over a year ago, where he lost the middleweight belt. Shortly after this he then got into a war of words with Dana White. This came about because he was overlooked for a middleweight title shot and George’s St.Pierre was installed as the next challenger. You can see the series of tweets below.
