And his past failures...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Luke Rockhold spoke about his failures in his career, getting redemption and the use of TRT. Here are highlights:
On getting knocked out by Vitor Belfort: "My coaches, everyone just said, ‘Really? Vitor threw a spinning heel kick and caught you?' What else is there to say? You know, I got caught by a crazy, spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime kind of kick. I don't see it happening again. I think that's how we all kind of judged it."
On TRT: "I'll never be a fan of TRT. It is what it is. It's so prevalent in the sport that I guess we're just going to have to deal with it. It sucks. … Especially guys that used steroids and now are on TRT, they lowered their testosterone, and they're just trying to make up for it now. They want to find a way to get through the system and cheat. If there's actual people who have real problems, sure, give them their exemption. But everyone's pretty much cheating and trying to find a way to get away with it. It's stupid."
On getting another shot at Belfort: "I want to get back in there and redeem myself [against Belfort], return the favor. It's definitely a fight I want in the near future. I don't believe a spinning heel kick tells the tale of our two skill sets. I'd like to do that over."
