UFC Free Fight: David Branch vs Krzysztof Jotko

Luke Rockhold returns at UFC Fight Night 116

Luke Rockhold returns at UFC Fight Night 116

MMA Junkie reported the news, and note that the promotion are now looking for a replacement opponent to face Perry. The reasons for his withdrawal, however, are not known yet. That fight marked his return to the welterweight division after a spell at lightweight.

As for Perry, he's gone 3-1 thus far in his UFC career with all of his victories coming by way of knockout or TKO including a vicious finish over Jake Ellenberger in his last fight in April that earned him a "Performance of the Night" bonus. He's a risky fight for anyone in the 170lb division, and the UFC may be hard pressed to find a short notice replacement to throw down with him.

UFC Fight Night 116 will be headlined by a fight between former middleweight champ Luke Rockhold, and former WSOF champ, David Branch. The main card will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1.

UFC Fight Night 116 is set for September 16 PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
