Humbled Rockhold Says TRT Had Nothing To Do With Belfort’s Kick
“I mean it’s hard to say what went wrong. I was feeling good. I was finding my timing. I felt like I was controlling things, and then he landed a spinning heel kick to my head. I felt good in this fight. I had a great camp. I felt good in the fight. I was focused. I don’t know if I got overconfident or what exactly happened. I don’t know. I thought I had it.
“I felt good. I saw his punches. I saw everything. I was landing some shots. I felt like I was starting to control things, and then I got caught. It happens. TRT had nothing to do with that kick.” Rockhold said.”It sucks right now. I don’t know. I want to get back in there. I want to fight, obviously. Everyone says it, but what can you do at this point? I want to get in there. I want to fight. I want to redeem myself.
“I lost to one of the best guys in the world, and it was something pretty spectacular. I don’t know what to really think about anything right now. I just want to get back and fight and beat someone up. That’s what I’m focused on. Good job by Vitor. What can I say?”
Prior to his UFC on FX 8 fight again Vitor Belfort Luke Rockhold gave media and fans the impression that the TRT use of Belfort was an unfair advantage. However, during the post-fight press conference a humbled former Strikeforce champion admitted defeat and took it gracefully saying TRT had nothing to do with the fight ending kick.
