Lorenz Larkin & Luke Rockhold in bitter Twitter quarrel

Monday, November 26, 2012

Lorenz Larkin was scheduled to challenge Luke Rockhold for his 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.
