Says Bisping needs to pay for past comments…
- Luke Rockhold spoke following UFC Fight Night 35 about wanting to fight Michael Bisping and more. Here are the highlights…
On His UFC Fight Night 35 Victory: "No doubt. Just come back and make my own highlights and be on the right side of it. That's what I came here for."
On Breaking Down The Fight: "Most interviews I do, I love my liver kick – I talk about it a lot – and I love my head kick," Rockhold said. "I was going to bait him in and try to tag him and knock him out. If I didn't, I was going to take him down. So I just felt comfortable in the standup. I was patient; I found my timing. I think that's the key to being the best I can be. Sometimes I rush things and look sloppy, but tonight I was composed and had my head together."
On Fighting Michael Bisping: "I'm looking at anyone in the middleweight division to get myself back into (title) position," Rockhold said. "I already let it be known Bisping's out there. A lot of people are calling him out, but Bisping went on national TV and told everybody he was the unofficial Strikeforce champion. He calls it a joke and this and that, but I say he's got bad taste and he needs to pay for it. I'd like to get that match. He's a top five middleweight out there. There's not many guys freed up right now, but I'm interested in getting in there as soon as possible and having a good 2014."
