Lorenz Larkin Says Luke Rockhold and Gilbert Melendez Aren't As Injured As They Claim
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.26.2012



Lorenz Larkin recently spoke with MMAjunkie about Luke Rockhold withdrawing from their scheduled January 12th fight for Strikeforce and more. Check out the highlights:

On Rockhold bowing out of the fight: "I'm not cut from that type of cloth. It's just a different era of fighters. They're not built how they used to be."

On being skeptical about Rockhold and Gilbert Melendez being too injured to fight: "I just feel like guys are acting like they haven't paved any way for them to go to the UFC and a catastrophe could happen on Jan. 12, where [UFC President Dana White is] going to be like, 'No. I didn't like the way you fought, and you're not going to come over."

On feeling like he's earned a spot in the UFC: "The good thing about me is that I never had any pressure. I didn't come from no big gym and make my debut on TV. I came from, like, 'Who the hell is this guy? This guy's going to get eaten up.' Everything that's happened so far has been a plus. There couldn't have been [a] negative because I just popped up and stayed."

On Rockhold and Melendez: "I just hate that I felt like it was one of those things where they were just buying time and they already knew that was going to happen. It's just retarded. Even Gilbert. It's just like, c'mon. I just think that [Rockhold] doesn't want to just fight. There's no doubt he's going to the UFC. He should have never taken the fight. I would rather him never taken the fight and me fought somebody totally different."

On whether he would like to fight Rockhold at the January 12th event: "I'd rather not. I'd rather take a different fight."
