UFC legend Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping is just one fight away from retirement. But long-time rival Luke Rockhold is here to make their bout even more interesting.
“I’ll put it on this: If Bisping beats me in this fight, I’ll be the mother****er who retires.”
But that’s not all Rockhold has to say.
“Mother****er, you got knocked out two times in a row by 170-pounders. Don’t talk about my knockout to Yoel ****ing Romero. He’s been knocked out more than me if you want to get down to it.”
In 2014, Rockhold would submit Bisping. But at UFC 199, Bisping would take the middleweight title from him after a first-round knockout. And Rockhold is here for revenge.
“There’s a lot of things I want to do but the motherfucker ran his mouth. He opened the door. I’m not one to turn down opportunities. I back up everything I say and I put it on the line. I’m going to back up what I say and let’s see if Bisping can back up what he says. I’m ready to go. The UFC is ready to go. The fans are ready to go.”
But Rockhold doesn’t stop there. After all, it’s a fight. Therefore, it’s time for hype.
“It all comes down to one boy. We’ll see if he’s a man or a boy. Men back up their words. Little boys run away.”
