The UFC has released a Countdown show to preview Luke Rockhold vs David Branch, the main event of their upcoming Fight Night card in Pittsburgh.

It shows the former champ in Rockhold switching up training, hosting camp in Florida instead of AKA while his main training partners in Cain Velasquez and Daniel Cormier are both inactive or injured. The feature also does a good job of introducing a former two-division WSOF champion in Branch to fans who may not know much about him.

Watch the full clip below:

Former UFC and Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold readies to return to the Octagon and make an example of anyone who stands between him and the title he believes will again be his. But gritty New Yorker David Branch has a similar goal, and believes his 11-fight win streak and multiple titles outside the UFC give him the edge in their upcoming showdown. Go inside the gyms and lives of these two driven athletes ahead of their Pittsburgh main event.
