One of the most anticipated entries to the UFC middleweight division, Luke Rockhold (10-2), made his debut on May 18th losing in the first round to Vitor Belfort by what would become the first of two spinning-heel kick knockouts in the past two weeks.
Now, Rockhold seems to look for a quick turnaround as he called out Michael Bisping (24-5) today via his official Twitter account:
Rockhold calls upon claims that Bisping regarded himself as the “Unofficial Strikeforce middleweight champion”, following sparring sessions with Rockhold.
Bisping last faced Alan Belcher at UFC 159 and defeated him via technical decision after Belcher was unfortunately poked in the eye in the third. Bisping, however, dominated the fight up until the poke.
Now we wait to see if this matchup of two top-middleweights will come to fruition.
