    Rockhold is part of the old guardians it seems like a lot of the advantages he had over opponents in the past have diminished. The “new school” fighters are more well rounded than the majority of the fighters in his era. Not all of them but the most of the up and comers would be competitive if now win against Theodore fighters of today. It’s the same trend that has happened time and time again in MMA

    For once I kinda agree with Rockhold. Boxing is a sport. Fighting is fighting.

    Lmao I love how rockhold is such an awkward and generally not popular fighter but we’re all rooting for him over Strickland

    Lmao everyone’s just a hater. He’s not even that awkward, he talks a little slower but he’s clear and gets to the point. I guarantee most of you are way more awkward than him

    Lukes been rocked many a time. He needs to keep that chin tucked and close distance more effectively. Sean doesn't have elite level striking technique, but he's awkward, hes game, and he hits hard despite looking like he's just floating punches- and good cardio. I would've liked to see rockhold vs Uriah hall tho

    Well I don't like Luke Rockhold, and Sean Strickland is gonna beat Rockhold, and if he is able to knock out Rockhold, ol Luke here better retire. I personally love his knockout losses, some of the best in MMA history, and I'm pretty sure there will be another one at UFC 268. Pulling for you Lukey boy
