I’m over waiting for Vitor Belfort and his ever-changing body to fight Chris Weidman. We need Weidman versus Rockhold. THAT is the TRUE fight to end all fights at 185. Besides, who knows how Vitor’s body will react being off TRT. He can only shave a crucifix into his hair for so much otherworldly power, and I think Rockhold beats Vitor right now. That’s how good Rockhold looked tonight.
Machida actually started out okay for the first few minutes, tagging Luke and displaying his usual, elusive style until he seemed to slip/get taken down midway through the first round. Rockhold then went on to have his way with Machida, elbowing him into Bolivia.
Machida stumbled woozily out into the center of the Octagon for the start of the second, but he was done. Luke takes him down, then makes the Dragon tap.
Luke Rockhold on the ground is scary. But what can you expect with Cain and Cormier pushing you every day.
