Lorenz Larkin & Luke Rockhold in bitter Twitter quarrel

source: twitter

Lorenz Larkin was scheduled to challenge Luke Rockhold for his Strikeforce" class="Newslink">Strikeforce Middleweight championship on Nov 3. An injury to Rockhold's wrist forced him off the card; shortly thereafter the entire card was scrapped.

The title fight was rescheduled to the Strikeforce Finale in Jan 12. Had Larkin won the title, it would it one sense immediately be gone, but in another sense it would remain in perpetuity. Further, being the champion would presumably help in negotiations with the UFC. However, Larkin will never get the title shot.

Now the same wrist injury failed to heal sufficiently, and has once again forced Rockhold off the card, and with it any chance of a Strikeforce title for Larkin, who reacted bitterly, via Twitter.

Kinda odd is Rockhold had been training for Larkin but says he never signed or started training for him. Rockhold sounds like he doesn't wanna fuck up his leverage with the UFC ( not that he has much).

unfortunately for the fans, injuries in MMA have become business decisions. I think if this were a few years ago half these pull-outs wouldnt have happened.

Why would ANY Strikeforce Champion fight on that card and risk their negotiating strength with the UFC?Injuries are accepted in today's MMA so it's easier to just play hurt than to risk future dollars. The whole system has hit a major growing pain.
