Hey, Luke Rockhold is fighting Tim Boetsch this weekend and I completely forgot! While this fight is more important for Tim than Luke, it still will cement Luke as a true top contender in the division or a guy who can hover around the top ten until he goes to the drawing board. Granted, his loss to Vitor is what sent Luke to the back of the line, and that’s something he doesn’t expect to happen again.
Luke let the fire come out when speaking to FOX:
“I don’t give a s–t. I’ll go back down to Brazil and fight Vitor on steroids. He’s not going to land that kick again,” Rockhold said. “I will overcome Vitor Belfort. No matter what, steroids or not, doesn’t matter to me. Lightning will not strike twice.”
“There’s some fishy things going on. The highs and lows of Vitor Belfort, I would not want to be that guy,” Rockhold said. “Be on top of the world getting all these ‘knockouts of the night’ and all these awards of the year and then all of a sudden get shunned into the shadows. He leads a shady life and it seems like karma might be coming back.”
“Who knows what’s going on with (Vitor) Belfort. He seems to be completely silent about it. Who knows what happened with that last drug test of his or when he’s going to be fighting,” Rockhold said. “I hope he comes back soon, because I definitely would be seeking that fight sooner than later.”
