As for Smith, he faces Alexander Gustafsson at UFC Stockholm on June 1. However, once that’s out of the way, Smith will pounce on the first opportunity available to get his hands on Rockhold, as he said at today’s (Fri. April 12, 2019) UFC Seasonal Press Conference:
“Yeah, that guys is a f*cking piece of sh*t. F*ck Luke Rockhold. The first opportunity I get, I’m going to drill a hole through Luke Rockhold’s f*cking face, I promise you guys that.”
“The first opportunity I get after this fight, doesn’t matter what happens, I’ll fight Luke Rockhold with one f*cking leg. I’m gonna beat that dude’s f*cking a**.”
