Luke Rockhold: Weidman Down In “Half The Time”

ufc 199

UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold isn’t shy about his plans to take care of Chris Weidman in their planned rematch.

After disposing of the then-unbeaten fighter last year, Rockhold and Weidman are scheduled to square off this June for the belt.

“Weidman goes down in two (rounds),” said Rockhold, during a recent interview with MMA Nation. “I’m putting him away in half the time.”

The former Strikeforce champion has heard the recent comments that Weidman fought him with a broken foot, responding by saying “I think it’s a joke.

“They know my situation,” he added. “I was on antibiotics and I still whooped his (expletive). I almost feel bad about this next one.”

The 31-year-old Rockhold improved to 15-2 in his career and stretched his current win streak to five with the fourth round finish of Weidman. Since a 2013 loss to Vitor Belfort, the American Kickboxing Academy fighter has finished Costas Philippou, Tim Boetsch, Michael Bisping, former UFC champion Lyoto Machida and Weidman.
