Rockhold KOs Phillipou in first with liver kick


The UFC Fight Night 35 main event featured two veteran middleweights, Luke Rockhold and Costas Phillipou, to move one step up the rankings ladder.

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold was looking to make a statement in his first fight back after a memorable knockout loss to Vitor Belfort.

It didn't take long for him to do so Wednesday night.

Rockhold used vicious body kicks to score a first-round knockout of Costas Phillipou in the main event of UFC Fight Night 35 at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia.

You gotta be kidding.Vitor almost finished Bisping in the first and he was saved by the bell and then he quickly took him out in the 2nd.Vitor was in control of the entire fight.

What? Bullshit Bisping hasn't improved.I think Mike might lose to Luke but he smashes Kennedy.

This is fucking absurd.So are we going to have to listen to this "lucky win" bullshit every time a guy gets KO's now? Because that is what it is certainly seeming like...

Agreed, it wasn't luck, some other force was at work. Can't quite put my finger on what that is though.....

While I generally agree that if a fight ends kind of early you dont necessarily learn much from it, considering what Vitor has done to Bisping, Rockhold, and Hendo in a row, I would say it was far from luck.

You are a fucking moron to say Bisping hasn't improved.
