David Branch’s second run will begin at UFC 211.

The former two-division WSOF champion relinquished his titles last month when he announced that he had re-signed with the UFC. His first run in the promotion was during 2010 and 2011 where he went 2-2 before being released.

Reports by FOX Sports and MMAFighting have revealed that Branch is expected to face Krzysztof Jotko at UFC 211. The UFC has not yet made an official announcement regarding the matchup.

Branch (20-3) is currently on a 10-fight win streak which includes a TKO over Yushin Okami and a unanimous decision over Vinny Magalhaes. His most recent win was in December over Louis Taylor at WSOF 34.

Jotko (19-1) has gone on a five-fight win streak after suffering the first defeat of his career to Magnus Cedenblad in 2014. He last fought at UFC Fight Night 100 where he was awarded a unanimous decision over Thales Leites. Prior to that, he scored a Performance of the Night knockout victory over Tamdan McCroy in just 59 seconds at UFC Fight Night 89.

UFC 211 takes place on May 13 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The card will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight and rematch between current champion Stipe Miocic and former champion Junior dos Santos.
