UFC on ESPN 2 results: Jack Hermansson throws, insta-taps David Branch with 1st-round guillotine

Middleweights Jack Hermansson and David Branch faced off tonight (Saturday, March 30, 2019) live on ESPN from inside Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Hermansson started out aggressive, jabbing away at Branch. They tied up, and Hermansson landed a huge throw! When Branch tried to work his way up against the cage, Hermansson locked in an arm-in guillotine. Branch had no choice but to tap! Huge win for Jack Hermansson! Hermansson truly lived up to his nickname ‘The Joker’ tonight.

Hermansson shouted out Philadelphia ‘the best fans in the world’ and got a big cheer. Anik pointed out he just submitted a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu black belt, has won five out of his last six, and what would he like next? Hermansson predicted he would have the belt in a year, and wanted whatever would get him to that point.

Official result: Jack Hermansson def. David Branch via submission (guillotine choke) at :49 of Round 1
