I'd be PO'd too if I was fighting a caught juicer who was being given a testosterone exemption.
Personally, I think Rockhold is being incredibly overlooked in this matchup. IMO Rockhold is the far superior athlete and cuts a furious pace which I think can drag Vitor into cardiocrushing territory and that never seems to go well for Vitor.
I see Rockhold walking into this fight with APPLYING PRESSURE being his #1 priority and I think he can eventually get takedowns and just press, press, press the pace to Vitor, work periphery kickboxing to set up his shots or to tie Vitor up on the cage, with 100% awareness of his footwork and cognition to not get backed-up.
Rockhold fights smart and I don't see him making mistakes that would give Vitor needless looks, which means Vitor is going to have to put himself out there(or at least be readied to pounce and counter, which could catch him flatfooted) and in doing so, I see him leaving himself open for takedowns, which overtime should be draining.
This is going to be a great fight and I've got Rockhold via UD. All things considered, Vitor's age, wear, cardio and mental state are areas I believe Rockhold can exploit in the fight to his advantage.
