Luke Rockhold haters are going to loathe what he had to say about Conor

Luke-Rockhold-haters-loathe-Conor

Like Derek Zoolander, Luke Rockhold is really really ridiculously good looking. This often leads to jealousy by other males and in some cases, even hatred. Luke Rockhold has his fair share of haters, but after backing Khabib Nurmagomedov and clowning on Conor McGregor a bit, Conor fans are going to loathe him.

The thing is, Rockhold isn’t wrong. Yes, Conor was trying to hype a fight during his pre-fight smack talk. However, he crossed way over the line of good taste and made it entirely too personal. This is why Khabib jumped the cage after UFC 229 and went after Dillon Danis. Then again, maybe he just did it because it was Dillon Danis.

Rockhold is just telling the truth from his perspective and can’t be faulted for that. Unless you are a Conor McGregor fan. Then, anything not pro-McGregor is offensive.

In just 8 hours, this video has over 150,000 views. About 149,000 Irish fans are mad at Luke Rockhold now.

DC teaching kids wrestling at AKA, Khabib and Rockhold drop by.

AKA

They are starting them young at AKA, getting world class instruction from the champ-champ.

Daniel Cormier is the champ-champ. He’s the UFC Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight champion, and he’s also one heck of a coach. Of course, these kids are getting amazing coaching when it’s just DC, but then Khabib and Luke Rockhold swung by as well. It’s hard to not like Daniel Cormier. He’s simply put an amazing athlete and a great human being. It’s also great to get a peak inside AKA.

AKA isn’t just a house for killers, it’s the home of the next generation of superstars as well. These kids don’t mess around and you can tell they are not just there to play games. They pay attention, they follow instruction and they are getting better for it. I stumbled across this video of DC coaching when a couple of his teammates stopped by to help out. You can see it for yourself below.

Instigator, Luke Rockhold, gets TUF fighter, Bryce Mitchell, breaking rules

instigator-luke-rockhold-fighter-mitchell

We know that Luke Rockhold is very soft spoken and he does a great job of allowing people to see only what he wants us to see. What he doesn’t usually allow us to see is that he is a huge goofball and instigator. On this season of TUF, Rockhold spent some time with Team … Read moreInstigator, Luke Rockhold, gets TUF fighter, Bryce Mitchell, breaking rules

Luke Rockhold vs Yoel Romero. Real-time corner audio.

rockhold-romero-real-time-corner-audio

Fight Affect brings us another fascinating corner audio video. This video is the real-time cornering from the UFC middleweight interim title fight (but-not-because-Yoel-Romero-missed-weight) between Yoel Romero and Luke Rockhold.

What is most interesting about this video is how Luke listens to everything that his corner says and Yoel does not. It shows that even with the best corner in the world, you can still lose. Conversely, it is crazy how a fighter can have a corner that gives no input whatsoever, but their fighter wins.

Luke’s corner gives very technical advice and it is all the correct advice. Meanwhile, the Spanish you hear from Romero’s corner mostly said things like, “There it is”, “nice”, or “left hand”. For the record, that is NOT super-trainer Mike Brown, who is an amazing corner-man.

Ultimately, reliving exactly what went down during the fight provides us with some beautiful insight as to what was going on that we never saw.

Of course, we all heard and saw, “I luh you” and can never unsee it.

“Inspired by the energy of the sea”. Luke Rockhold in Polo Blue ad.

inspired-energy-sea-rockhold

As the new face of Ralph Lauren’s new fragrance, Polo Blue, Luke Rockhold’s face is everywhere that Polo Blue is. The fragrance is described as being “Inspired by the energy of the sea” and Luke is doing his part to endorse the product.

The people at Ralph Lauren are putting videos out with Rockhold in them and Luke is surfing, throwing punches under water, and basically being really really ridiculously good looking. The ads seem to be working because I can practically smell him from here.

I remember a guy who could fight, wore nice suits, drove slick cars, and was a hit with the ladies…

His name was James Bond.

Luke Rockhold promises to retire if he loses again to Michael Bisping

Luke Rockhold

Luke Rockhold has vowed he will retire from MMA if he’s beaten again by Bisping. In a fight, anything can happen. Truer words have never been spoken. Just ask Mike Tyson in Tokyo, Japan. Ask Ronda in Australia. Ask GSP in Houston and hell, ask Rockhold in Inglewood. Upsets happen.

Is Luke Rockhold heading to Light Heavyweight? He likes desserts.

Luke Rockhold

Luke Rockhold posted this video simply saying 2-0-5.

Listen, if you’re going to work as hard as these fighters work, you have to have some enjoyment in your life as well. For former UFC Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold, that comes apparently in the form of dessert. A lot of desserts. Luke has a big frame and the cut to 185 was not an easy one. So the remedy is going up to Light Heavyweight.

I think his speed and athletism will be more effective at Light Heavyweight and even if it’s not, the dude gets to rock this majestic dessert plate in complete happiness.

Luke Rockhold teasing his debut at 205 and some of the tasty treats he can now enjoy from r/MMA

I think  Luke would do well to make the move to Light Heavyweight. There are a lot of compelling matchups for him there. Plus, if his friend Daniel Cormier defeats Stipe Miocic, he might be vacating the 205-pound belt clearing the way for Luke.

Check out Luke when he was on The Real Quick with Mike Swick Podcast. It’s an entertaining show.

RQMS Podcast. UFC 221 Perth recap with the guys

rqms-podcast-perth-recap-boys

The boys are back with another UFC recap. Mike and Marc break UFC 221 down for your listening pleasure. With Luke Rockhold being a teammate of Swick’s, it’s understandable that the mood is a little somber.

The happy couple goes over the main card from top to bottom in great detail. At UFC 221 there was definitely a lot of moments worth covering and Mike and Marc hit them all.

One focal point that needed covering was Li Jingliang’s brutal eye gouge of Jake Matthews. They also went over the impressive KO win from Tai Tuivasa and then shotgunning a beer out of some random guy’s shoe.

After, they discuss two of Swick’s friends; Mark Hunt and Luke Rockhold. That is one of the best things about this podcast…  A LOT of people who fight in the UFC have rolled through AKA Thailand at some point and Swick has a lot of extra insight.

Enjoy our UFC 221 breakdown.
