RICH ATTONITO VS. DAVE BRANCH

Round 1 - Referee Josh Rosenthal in the cage for the evening's first fight. Touch of gloves gets us started. Circling early, and Branch moves into the clinch. Small crowd to start, and you can actually hear the broadcasters call in the silence as the two jockey for position. Attonito finally breaks free and moves away. Branch rushes in again, but Attonito sidesteps. Attonito fires a few bombs. A right hand scores, but Branch uses the close range to get a takedown. Half-mount against the cage for Branch. Halfway in. Branch pulls Attonito's head away from the cage and looks for a D'arce choke. Attonito pulls away and tries to stand, but Branch stays on top in half-mount. Branch delivers a few shots from the top. Attonito stands, and Branch goes with him. He locks in a guillotine on the feet. He lets it go as he moves to the ground, but he looks for mount. Attonito spins and scrambles out the back and moves to the feet. Into the clinch again, where the round ends.

MMAjunkie.com scores it for Branch, 10-9.

Attonito lands a nice right hand inside, and the two jockey for the underhooks. Knee inside from Attonito. Branch pushing in. Attonito trying to slide away, but Branch ducks down and scores the takedown. Attonito pops right back up. Slow pace right now. Attonito trying to work free, but Branch slides around to the back. Branch turns in as he lands against the cage again. Two minutes left. Branch ducks down again. Attonito looks for a choke from the front, but Attonito slides out and scores another takedown. Side control for Branch. He spins and looks for mount, though he settles for a half version. Attonito scrambles and again works to his feet, but Branch controls the head and lands a few knees before the bell.

Round 3 - Attonito again in the center. Branch drives in for a takedown. Attonito scrambles when he hits the floor and works back to his feet. Branch takes the back, though Attonito stalls from the front and prevents an advance. Attonito tries to escape from the hold, but Branch scores another takedown and works from his opponent's guard. Branch passes to half-mount and then out to the side. Attonito regains half-guard quickly. Attonito's corner calling for a standup from Rosenthal, but Branch continues to work for position and eventually works to the back as Attonito rolls. He's looking for the choke, but he does take time to posture up and pepper Attonito's head with punches. One minute left, and Branch has both hooks in. Attonito postures and tries to pull out the back. Branch does fall, but he moves immediately back into the clinch. Attonito tries to fire elbows, but it's not going to be enough. Dave Branch def. Rich Attonito via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).

Ditto, and probably the last time we see Attonito in UFC for a while.

Garza KOs Paixao in 51 seconds. Leaping knee. Paixao was out for several minutes and almost had to be taken out on a stretcher, but eventually left on his own with some help.

With wins over Jamie Yager and Rafael Natal. Not sure if that's enough anymore.

Natal is one of the BJJ teachers at the Renzo Gracie school Branch trains at. That's a solid win. But yeah, with all of the influx of talent, who knows what is deemed enough to keep a fighter on the roster.
