Luke Rockhold kicked Costas Philippou's liver into the afterlife at UFC Fight Night 35

Luke Rockhold kicked Costas Philippou's liver into the afterlife at UFC Fight Night 35

In person, Luke Rockhold looks like a guy that knows the words to at least one Bone Thugs n Harmony song. He's not MMA's version of Johnny Cage, leave that to KJ Noons. Luke Rockhold is just a guy that hits people so hard that he breaks his hand over their craniums. Evolution never expected Luke Rockhold to exist. Otherwise, the human species would have developed stronger hands. Perhaps Luke is one of those mutants that appear once every 10,000 years that gives humanity a glimpse of what our species will soon evolve into. According to that explanation, in the future all humans will have 11-2 records and be former Strikeforce middleweight champions. Finally, a future I can believe in. The Jetsons had it all wrong.

Luke Rockhold has also adapted a talent that every post-pubescent male fears. No, it's not being rejected by the opposite sex and then humiliated on the internet. It's the dreaded liver shot, and apparently Rockhold has mastered it through the use of well-placed kicks as illustrated in this Zprophet gif from tonight's UFC Fight Night 35.
