UFC middleweight and potential title challenger Luke Rockhold is still awaiting word form the UFC on whether he will indeed be next in line to face champion Chris Weidman, but is already talking about taking the belt in another division.

On Jon Anik and Kenny Florian’s Podcast Rockhold expressed his interest in eventually jumping up to light-heavyweight, but says only if its for the title.

“If I’m going to 205, it’s going to be nothing except to challenge for the title. I’m not going up for any fights in between. I would definitely be… I mean I have a lot of work to do here at 185. But as long as I have the belt there and the belt’s on the line at 205, I’d be happy to move up and take that shot.”

How do you think he would do at 205?
