Luke Rockhold Doesn’t Think Belfort Will Make It To Weidman Fight

1

Number five-ranked UFC Middleweight contender Luke Rockhold (12-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) recently lashed out at rival Vitor Belfort during a recent media scrum. When the discussion of Vitor Belfort getting the next UFC Middleweight Championship match against Chris Weidman came up, Rockhold noted that he doesn’t think Belfort will make it to the fight and that he will be ready to jump in and replace him when that happens.

“I just don’t think Vitor is going to make it to the fight. So I’m going to be ready.”

Rockhold wasn’t shy in explaining exactly why he feels the way he does about Belfort.

“If he’s clean and healthy, he’ll probably get injured. His body will fall apart; it’s too frail.”

“He’s been doing this sh-t for too long and if he realizes he can’t compete off of it, he’s probably going to try to slip something in and he’s going to get popped with a test. So I just think that someway or another, he’s going to fall out. So I’m just going to be ready.”
