UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping was a guest on MMA Uncensored this week and discussed the transition of Strikeforce fighters to the UFC with the company on its last breaths.

Bisping pulled no punches when he gave his thoughts on where current Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold stands in the pecking order:

“Luke Rockhold? By all accounts he and Lorenz Larkin should fight and the winner of that fight — if not both of them — go over to the UFC. Are they gonna come over and be number one contenders? I don't think so. You're in Strikeforce, come over to the UFC and earn your place. Let me put it like this: I've sparred with Luke Rockhold recently and let's just say I'm the unofficial Strikeforce champion. Sorry Luke, but these are the facts.”
