It's been a middleweight kind of week. Seven days ago, we watched Anderson Silva finally put Chael Sonnen in his rearview mirror. On Wednesday, blue-chip prospect Chris Weidman announced himself as a credible title threat. And on Saturday night, it was Luke Rockhold's turn to take the spotlight.
The Strikeforce middleweight champion didn't disappoint. He shut down Tim Kennedy's vaunted grappling game and out-struck the challenger en route to a decision win.
The judges scored it 49-46, 49-46, 49-46 for Rockhold.
