UFC middleweight Luke Rockhold will take on champ Chris Weidman at UFC 194, in the co-main event of the Aldo vs. McGregor headlined card.

The talking has been going on between the two for a while now, but now with the fight finally official, it’s obvious things are going to start ramping up.

Weidman recently came out and said he thinks Rockhold is ‘insecure’ and already knows that he doesn’t actually stand a chance at winning the title.

Well, because of course, Rockhold responded with his own comments.

Here’s what he told MMAFighting:

“It sounds like [Weidman]’s asleep in bed. I just don’t know what the hell’s going on in his head. I don’t know if he’s psychologically convinced himself that we’re scared of him or something, but he’s not on the right page. I feel like he’s in for a rude awakening.

“I know one thing…I’m going to start bringing Monster Energy drinks to our press conference and all our media engagements, just to give him something extra to promote this fight. His interviews are like watching paint dry.”

Rockhold also took to Twitter to get his message out there:
