Luke Rockhold on preparing Daniel Cormier for Jon Jones: 'I poke him in the eyes whenever I can'
Along with Cain Velasquez, Rockhold is one of the primary training parts of Cormier. He's tasked with emulating Jones, and it seems like he has got it down to a T.
"I’m pretty the much the most like Jon Jones he's gonna find. So we’re gonna be putting some hard rounds in together like we always do, and I’m not gonna take it easy on him that’s for sure," he said. "Pretty much when we're walking around the gym, I look to try and poke him in the eyes whenever I can. Keep him on his toes, you know."
Luke Rockhold doubts Belfort will present much of a challenge for Weidman: ‘He’s got a chicken neck now’
Luke Rockhold has certainly not been shy to voice his opinion regarding former UFC light-heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort and his PED history.
Most recently, Rockhold went on a tirade about Belfort's apparently smaller physique in a recent interview and insisted that he will not present much of a challenge for middleweight champion Chris Weidman without the benefit of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).
"He's gonna be a lot different fighter," Rockhold told Submission Radio. "Who knows what he's gonna be like, but I just don't think he's gonna have much for Weidman. He looks old and he looks like he's got a chicken neck now, so I don't know. He looks tiny! I don't know how he's gonna keep the weight on, 'cause he was on UFC on Fox, man the guy looked tiny. He literally looked like a small welterweight."
