Luke Rockhold Responds To Sean Strickland Fight Proposal
Former UFC champion Luke Rockhold has heard the talk from Sean Strickland, and now, he's ready to silence him.
Former UFC champion Luke Rockhold has heard all the talk from Sean Strickland. And he’s ready to fight him.
Strickland, who scored a main event victory this past weekend over Uriah Hall, had previously been offered to Rockhold.
But as the fighter explained during an interview with Submission Radio, he didn’t know who Strickland really was.
That changed with the win over Hall.
“They offered me Sean actually a while back, a while back. And I just wasn’t interested cause he’s just a fucking nobody,” Rockhold said. “It wasn’t the fight I wanted. It didn’t make any sense, no one knew of him, and I didn’t give two fucks about him. And now it’s like Dana’s (White) trying to piss me off with it. And now he’s obviously been out there, he beat Uriah Hall, he looked decent and he took a ranking. So, there’s something to work with I guess now. And everybody else, everybody else is really… they offered it to Uriah.
“Uriah chose Strickland instead of me. They offered the Chimaev fight. Obviously that didn’t come to be. I liked that too, that was exciting. That kind of got me up. I don’t know, this is what we have, and there were some other fights they kind of dicked around with. So, this is seemingly gonna happen. We just gotta get a good fight date and something that’s fucken sexy and timely.”
