But don't you agree that Costa is the easiest fight for him? Philippou is mainly a stand-up guy with no particular skills on the ground, and his TDD isn't anything special either. Rockhold will come in, take him down, keep him there for 3 rounds, that's it. I'm thinking that, if Belfort wins in an impressive fassion, Luke and him could fight for NR 1. contenders spot.
Rockhold will be looking to keep the fight on the feet.
