Wouldn't say he was calling UFC guys out in this interview. Just sounds like he shares the same sentiment as the other top guys in SF that the division are going to continue to get shallower.

Why would they bring Lombard into Strikeforce? It's pretty clear that they are just keeping SF around until their Showtime contract expires. Kennedy needs to keep focused on beating the SF champ before he worries about anything else. The UFC will be around in two years will Strikeforce?

I was too distracted to finish the article by the fact that Keith Jardine is actually competing for a title.

Give More.
Give everything.
Give blood.

The addition of Rockhold, Jacare and Kennedy into the UFC MW division would definitely beef up the MW roster and I think they could be competitive. Mix in the signing of Lombard and the return of Franklin and the UFC could make the MW division the deepest division. I hope it happens soon.

Kennedy would get smoked by basically everyone in the UFC top ten. Rockhold is a less skilled version of Bisping in my opinion and would be a 7 through 12 ranked fighter in the UFC.

I think Rockholdt is the real deal.

I think it was Mo who said he thinks he is a top 4 MW right now.

Rockholdt has been killed by injuries, wait until he strings a few together.

Him and Bisping would be a real good fight in my opinion.

Rockhold's a young guy he needs a little more experience under his belt but he'll get there, I wouldn't favor him over Silva and Sonnen though.

Jacare is capable of beating a lot of the UFC's guys, he needs to get over there asap.

Tim Kennedy however, probably wouldn't amount to much. I've never seen anything from him that makes him stand out, Jacare is one of the best guys in MMA when it comes to ju-jitsu and Rockhold's a pretty decent striker and working at AKA with savages like Fitch, Mo Lawal, Cain, and most importantly Daniel Cormier his wrestling is bound to come along.

I wanna see the Rockhold/Jacare rematch soon though.
