"There aren't a lot of fights that make a lot of sense right now," he today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "Obviously (Chris) Weidman is injured, and he's out until summer or fall. But Vitor (Belfort) looked pretty good the other night. He turned back the clock and looked like his old self. He's a legend, and I'd be honored to fight the guy. I think that makes a lot of sense."

"But now Belfort won, and he makes sense," Rockhold said. "Lombard could be down the line too. Who knows? I just want to fight. Truthfully, Belfort probably makes the most unless they want to do a champion vs. champion fight (with Silva). But I'm game for whatever they want."

"I really don't care," he said. "A warmup fight would be nice. I'm not going to lie. Anderson Silva, I'm not sure that would make the most sense right now. My name may not be as big as they want to sell a big pay-per-view like that. But if they want that fight, I'm down to take the fight. I'd take it, no questions asked."

It's too bad, Rockhold/Weidman would have been a perfect fight.

Silva wouldn't make sense because he'd get killed....Luke needs a few fights indeed. Phone Post

Misleading title.

He said he'd be honoured to fight Belfort then later on in the article said he'd prefer a warm up fight instead of fighting silva straight off the bat. Phone Post

Dude is calling out a tough quality opponent that is highly respected and presents massive problems for anyone. Good on him much respect to him.

Rockhold will lose to any top 10er he faces. Belfort kills him. .. He's basically a less skilled, younger bisping with less punching power. Hes not good imo.

the title summarizes what he said. he said Belfort would be a good first fight. he also said a warm-up fight instead of fighting Silva right away would be good.

This is why mma fans fail to appreciate anything. We convince ourselves nobody is a good fighter. He beat Jacare. Whether or not he is a elite, top 5 or even top 10 does not mean is isn't a good fighter. That is just disrespectful.

He definitely has the ability to beat Belfort and vise versa, I'd be down to see them square off. Phone Post

Fuck you you disrespectful idiot. Every fighter in the top 15, at the top level of the sport, is "good." Good is putting it very mildly.

Except rockhold. Hes not good. I get you have a crush on him, fine. As your gay lover, maybe hes great. As a fighter, hes not good.

Typical UG news headline. He said he "would be honored" to fight Belfort and called him a legend. The later said that he would like a "warm up fight" before he fought Silva. Phone Post

Thread title is misleading, indefensible, and absolutely not a summary of what Rockhold said. Ridiculous.

Rockhold, and the Jacare, are very very exceptional talents. You can tell this, because they are top 10 IN THE WORLD at what they do (except Jacare who is still really good).


This is disrespectful fighter bashing.
