    What do you think it will look like when a 205’er KOs him.

    I can’t wait for a Rockface img!

    YEAH!

    It's going to happen.

    He's a decent sized MW but is gonna get dwarfed and over powered by the LHWs.

    Want to see him fight Latifi to get thungs started.

    Weight isn't Rockhold's issue, he has glaring flaws that have gotten him in trouble and he's done nothing to fix them and that's why he has several of horrible knock out losses.


    I think Rumble should come out of retirement and welcome Luke to 205lbs.

    I'm a fan of rockhold, I think he'll do great in 205. Though he needs to really be careful on the feet, there are real heavy hand killers there in 205

    Rockhold blows

    Thoroughly unimpressed by most of his ufc performances

    He's done if he gets touched at lhw

    It's hard to say. It could be great for him or he could just keep getting KO'd into oblivion

    Perfect timing. Can’t remember the last time LHW was this bad.

    Rumble and Jones are gone. Cormier too but they wouldn’t have fought anyways. They’re boys.

    Rockhold is a smart dude to move up. Yeah his chin isn’t great, but I’m just not impressed by a lot of guys at 205. Rockhold can definitely make some noise.

    Rockhold's a massive MW, he'll be fine at 205.

    Or at least he would if he had any striking defense.

    His biggest issue Imo is that he isn't learning from his loses.

    205 is so weak... Rockhold would be top 5 to contender. Just that chin. But I will be watching...

    Lol damn, why you gotta do the mans like that, After what Latifi did to Saint Preux, he'd massacre Luke worse than Romero did, it will be this all over again.

    Rockhold vs OSP sounds like a good scrap

    He would be a contender but I worry his chin may not hold up.
    Glover vs Rockhold would be a good fight.

    nah luke is as legit as they come

    he's had some highlight reel KO loses in the UFC however 2 of those guys Vitor and Romero are/were roided to the nips. his lost to bisping was because he was going 75% disrespecting the Count and the Count was going 100%. you can never disrespect the skills of someone who's a UFC contender.

    He also needs to drag guys into his NOGI game

    his destruction of Boestch and Machida on the Ground was impressive..in fact I'd say he's elite on the ground.

    His chin might be a little less touchy if he doesn't have to cut weight. Maybe... haha
