VIDEO: Luke Rockhold injures foot while sparring with Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson

Luke Rockhold may have recently signed a modeling contract but he’s still training apparently, after injuring his foot while training with Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson, according to a Youtube video released on Friday.

“I was sparring with Anthony Johnson the other day,” the former middleweight champ said on camera. “He’s pretty good at blocking kicks.”

“This hurts so f***ing bad,” Rockhold said as he assessed the damage.

The 51 second clip shows Rockhold getting his injured foot massaged by two women while laughing and joking around. Rockhold doesn’t have a fight lined up since losing the middleweight title to Michael Bisping at UFC 199.

‘Rumble’ recently knocked out fellow light heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira in just 13 seconds flat at UFC 202.

While Rockhold says he turned down a fight offer and won’t get back into the Octagon unless the money is right, the training injury he sustained while training with ‘Rumble’ Johnson suggests he’s still actively training while pursing his modeling career.
