Luke Rockhold proved he is championship material by defeating Lyoto Machida in dominant fashion at ‘UFC on FOX 15’. In any normal sport, Rockhold would have the chance to rest up for a couple months before he fought for the championship. However, in the ever changing and injury ridden sport of MMA, a spot in the main event of UFC 187 could open up at any time.
During the post fight press conference, Luke Rockhold stated that he would be ready to fill in for Belfort or Weidman if they pulled out of UFC 187.
