Jack Hermansson just ran right through the promotion’s #11 ranked middleweight David Branch in just 49-seconds into the UFC Philadelphia co-main event. Hermansson got his takedown, locked up an arm-in guillotine, sat back and it was a wrap. Branch was caught and forced to tap out. This marks the third-straight win and finish for Hermansson, who positions himself for another notable name in his next fight. It’s also just the second time that Branch, a Renzo Gracie black belt, has ever been submitted in MMA competition.

With such a short outing against Branch, there’s a great chance that Hermansson is walking away from this match injury-free, which could lead to a quick return to the Octagon.
