After his dominant victory over Lyoto Machida at “UFC on FOX 15”, Luke Rockhold is all but confirmed to be the next challenger to the UFC Middleweight Champion. Dana White said it was likely during a recent scrum with the media.
“Probably. It makes sense that he would be next, yes, that he would be next… Who knows how all this stuff is gonna play out.”
While it seems like everybody including Chris Weidman are thinking about Luke Rockhold, White mentions that nobody should overlook Vitor Belfort. Belfort challenges Weidman for the championship at UFC 187 in May. “Chris still has to fight Vitor, and whoever wins has to come out uninjured, which hasn’t been easy to do lately, and then we have to make sure Luke stays healthy.”
