    So much for that Alexander Gustafsson vs. Luke Rockhold fight. At least for now.

    The bout, which had been discussed for what was expected to be a light heavyweight matchup at UFC 227 in Los Angeles on Aug. 4, was never officially announced.

    But a leg injury suffered by the former UFC middleweight champion has put those talks on ice for now, MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani reported Tuesday.

    Rockhold, who suffered the leg injury last week in training, posted a graphic video in which he received stitches in the injured leg (WARNING: GRAPHIC).

    If by “injured leg” he means “I don’t want to get concussed again” then yeah.

    Seems way too premature. I honestly don't think there's anyone else out there for Gus right now. They should pull Shogun from the Volkan fight and he should step in.

    I really don't think he really wanted any part of that fight with that fine crystal chin of his...

    I wouldn’t go as far as calling him an “idiot” but I don’t nevessarily disagree.
