With the score tied at 1 win apiece for both men, Rockhold is eyeing a trilogy fight with Bisping sooner rather than later despite the fact that it appears that Bisping will look to defend his title against Dan Henderson first.
Rockhold spoke on The MMA Hour:
“I think the odds are high,” Rockhold told Ariel Helwani in a recent episode of The MMA Hour. “I think the opportunity is there. … I f*cked up the whole division. I put Bisping in a place where he feels empowered and he’s trying to pick and choose his fights. I think it’s put a strain on everything, on all the matchups that need to happen. My bad. I f*cked up. I’m sorry to the fighters and I’m sorry to the fans that they have to deal with this piece of sh*t.”
“He’s a tough guy,” Rockhold said. “I lost fair and square. But the odds of that happening are fairly low. He caught me on the tip of my chin on the way out in a perfect moment and then followed it up.
“Congrats to him. He won. I think the guy is a true piece of sh*t and I think he’s classless. Like I said, I’d love the opportunity to get that back. I think the odds are the odds and I’d love to write that wrong and fix it for everybody. I don’t think he deserves it. I don’t think he knew he was gonna do it. Obviously his reaction tells that. It’s not gonna last long. I want that back. I want to settle the score. It’s 1-1.”
