He had right hand's early in the 1st & 2nd that staggered Luke but didn't put him down. Jacare started dropping off midway through round 2.

Rockhold does need to learn how to keep his hands near his face.

Luke is a tough match-up for Chris. GTFO, it's a great fight.

Vitor, Rockhold, and Jacare are all potentially very dangerous fights for Chris. It is MMA after all. But if he gets by those three I don't see who beats him. And I still would give Machida in a rematch the best shot of anyone (depending on the time frame as he isn't a young fighter) But I don't see any of them beating Weidman twice so if one does manage to get him they won't have the belt for long.

Weidman would annihilate Jacare. Rockhold is at least semi-well rounded.

Chris is gonna smash Luke's surfboard if they ever fight.

They're pretty much the same size. Rockhold is an inch taller, Weidman's reach is an inch longer.
