There have been a plethora of MMA fighters who have been fortunate enough to land several opportunities outside of fighting, thanks to their success inside the Octagon or simply due to their looks, charisma, or “it” factor.
Former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold made a big move outside the Octagon and has been tapped as the fresh face of the Polo Blue franchise (including the brand’s latest cologne, Polo Ultra Blue, which hits shelves in March).
Rockhold was announced as the new face of a notable cologne Friday evening, and he announced the news via social media post:

This isn’t the first modeling gig for Luke Rockhold, as he was also featured on the cover of At-Large magazine and appeared in an episode of Bravo’s hit show Millionaire Matchmaker.
Most recently, former champ Rockhold defeated by Yoel Romero with a stunning third-round knockout at UFC 221 pay-per-view event last month. That contest was meant to put Rockhold back to into the position to challenge for another shot at obtaining the middleweight title.
