    Come on now.
    He referred to Yoel as the real deal and top of the division as well.
    What he did is point out the contradiction of calling yourself soldier of God then talking about naming people... which he is right, and I think he was doing is just being ironic.
    But he did point how good Yoel was, and IMO it was respectful.

    Just the way he is. Some fighters are like that, their opponent thinks they can beat them and they take it personal.

    Didn't say really he was disrespectful - just that he seemed legit angry when talking about Yoel.

    Don't see how that is out of context. He said exactly that - it means exactly the same thing even if I included the rest of his statements.

    This,

    i feel like hes one of those guys that has spent his life looking for some kind of vindication or has that me agiasnt the world type mindset..can be a good asset to have as a fighter , makes you focus and push to surpass everyone else.. after the bisping loss he does seem even darker now..with his trash talk..which i wouldnt even call trash talk as i believe its his real opinion..

    I don't think it's an act. He just seems the kind who was born with a chip on his shoulder for some reason. There doesn't have to be a logical reason for it either, some folks are just that way...

    I don't know... I didn't get that vibe.
    IMO it is just how he speaks, like an ... "annoyed" kind of guy who "knows he is the best" and it reflects on how he speaks. But it is confidence mixed with the status of how things happened since he lost his belt.
    I think he genuinely believes he should be fighting Yoel, as they are the top of the division (along with Whittaker and Jacare), and the nonsense of Bisping and GSP fuck this up for over a year.

    well of course he's going to be angry and on edge. he's going to fight that other guy who wants to take away what he wants. look at the diaz bros. now they REALLY get angry at their opponents. i just think that rockhold puts absolutely no front on who he is. he is who he is, and i respect that.

    Rockhold has a superiority complex. its obvious. But can you blame him? Hes like 6'3, stupidly hansom and jacked, and an elite cage fighter.

    I dont think you understand the concept of salt, most likely upset at the whole planet for giving Romero a chance.

    Yeah I guess I don't. I think there typically needs to be a reason to have salt?
