For now, Luke Rockhold remains retired. But the former champion already has an out in mind.
Rockhold appeared on Submission Radio recently to discuss his future. That includes a potential return to action if Alex Pereira were to win the title.
Pereira is set to challenge Israel Adesanya for the belt later this year.
“Alex Pereira. He’s gonna have every wrestler in the fucken game just chomping at the bit to get that guy. Let’s go. Let’s get the free belt,” Rockhold said. “Yeah. The only thing is you gotta fight Robert Whitaker or some shit in between. It’s like, fuck, [that’s] gonna hurt. Cause win or lose with Robert Whitaker, that shit hurts. That shits gonna hurt, we’re gonna fight.”
