He claimed he would be capable to have good results at 205 if an individual like Smith did. “Lionheart” did not like all those words and phrases and due to the fact then the two have trashed just one a different top many to assume a fight would transpire.
Regrettably, Rockhold was knocked out by Jan Blachowicz and then hinted at retirement. Still, the previous middleweight champion recently introduced he would be producing a comeback. He wouldn’t say if it would be at middleweight or light heavyweight. If it comes about to be a 205-kilos, ‘Lionheart’ would adore to share the Octagon with the previous champ.

He is really excellent, he is a risky striker. His top activity and jiu-jitsu is famous, persons converse about that s**t in the gym. I have hardly ever rolled with him, I know plenty of folks who have. Practically all of them say he is a monster on leading. I don’t want that to get twisted that mainly because I don’t like him and I discuss trash about him, that I really do not feel he is good.
“I feel if he could – I really don’t know how to say this without the need of sounding like an asshole – if he could take a shot and not tumble asleep every time, Luke Rockhold is even now one of the most harmful fellas in the entire world. I would adore for the option to contend versus a previous winner from another person that is as great as Luke Rockhold,” Smith continued. “And, I’d appreciate to defeat up an individual I really don’t like that significantly. So, I will often soar at an prospect to struggle Luke Rockhold any prospect I can get.”
