Luke Rockhold isn’t exactly optimistic about the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s (UFC) 185-pound division.
Rockhold hasn’t competed since June 2016. He lost his middleweight title to Michael Bisping via first-round knockout. Rockhold has been healing up his injuries and is set for a return soon.
The former champion won’t just fight anyone, however. Rockhold told MMAFighting.com that his next bout has to be worthwhile:
“I’m not coming back after all this time and fighting some chump on a worthless card. I’m coming back in style and making some noise.”
Rockhold isn’t shy about his views on the state of the middleweight division. Bisping still wants a fight with Georges St-Pierre, while Robert Whittaker will battle Yoel Romero on July 8 at UFC 213 for the interim gold.
“The division is f*cked. No interesting fights.”
