Rockhold Calls His Finish Over Weidman: ‘A Left Kick or a Left Hand’

Luke Rockhold returns at UFC Fight Night 116

Rockhold Beating Machida

“Weidman’s going to come forward, he’s going to try to wrestle, he’s going to try to pressure me. I’m going to stop him, I’m going to hit him with everything I got. He’ll probably try to take me down. I guarantee I’m going to threaten him. I’m going to put some kind of submission or get back up. He’s going to panic, we’re going to get back to our feet and then I’m going to start finding my groove on the feet, cutting him off.

“He comes forward very strong at the beginning, but when you hit him with something, he starts backing up and playing that middle ground game, that’s a game where he’s going to lose. I’m going to catch him with something clean. It’s going to be a left kick or a left hand.”

UFC middleweight title contender Luke Rockhold will meet champ Chris Weidman at UFC 194 in the night’s main event.

Ahead of that we get to hear and read the rather entertaining trash talk between the two. Rockhold told The MMA Hour that he believed he’ll catch Weidman with either a left hand or a left kick. Do you think Weidman will try to wrestle Rockhold like he says, or will he stand and strike?
