Previous Final Combating Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is expected to make his return to combined martial arts (MMA) by the stop of the 12 months and seems to be “interested” in a 185-pound rematch versus longtime rival Chris Weidman.
That’s according to ESPN.
Rockhold, who turns 36 in Oct, has struggled to continue to keep himself afloat over the last number of several years, dropping a few of his final 4 — all by way of knockout — from the best of the food chain. That includes his mild heavyweight debut from Jan Blachowicz back in July 2019, which ended in complete disaster.
Of his 6 victories within the Octagon, only Weidman stays an active UFC fighter. The “All American” not too long ago bought again into the win column with a “sloppy” unanimous choice nod over Omari Akhmedov at UFC Vegas 6 in Las Vegas.
Equally Rockhold and Weidman have expressed curiosity in operating it back in excess of the several years, and this December will mark five decades given that Rockhold (16-5) stopped Weidman (15-5) to capture the 185-pound strap at UFC 194 in “Sin City.”
The moment more, with feeling?
