Luke Rockhold Wants Vitor Belfort Rematch or Title Shot

UFC middleweight Luke Rockhold has been cleared to train after a toe injury suffered in his most recent win, which came against Tim Boetsch, according to UFC Tonight.

Rockhold, who has pulled off two wins in a row after his UFC debut loss to Vitor Belfort, already knows exactly what he wants next. Rockhold told Ariel Helwani, “I want Vitor. If they won’t grant me that then I want the title, I’ve beaten everybody else.”

The everybody else that Rockhold is referring to are most likely Ronaldo Souza, who is ranked 4th directly above Rockhold and Tim Kennedy who sits at No. 6, directly below Rockhold. He holds wins over both men.

Before his highlight reel knockout loss to Belfort, Rockhold was on a 9 fight win streak. Should he get a rematch, or a title shot?
