Rockhold should have grasp the opportunity and campaign for a title unification when Silva was mentioning him as a possible opponent. Now he's probably never getting close to a UFC title anymore.

If he can't beat Vitor he can't beat Silva, so what's the difference? And don't say money because a true fighter doesn't think like that.

This made me wonder how many people who claim to be religious are actually just paying lip service. If he truely believes, shouldn't he just pray for more testosterone instead of getting it from a doctor?

I assume this is five rounds? Luke has a shot, I think Vitor is better but Rockhold is scrappy he can find a way to win every round. If Belfort doesn't get the finish I like Rockholds chances at the decision.

I didn't think they'd do a fight on May 4th, that's gonna be a huge night for Boxing.

No doubt. I don't even watch much boxing but I will be tuning in for El Canelo vs Money.

You don't think they are thinking about paychecks? The amount of times fighters have done/said things to protect their money or make more money is crazy. Fighters are constantly talking about it being a job and protecting their shots. Or saying so and so would be big money.

They may be true fighters, but this is their job now.

If Luke can run for a round or 2 he has a chance to outlast and win on the cards. Other than that he has little chance. If they exchange early we will see what his chin is about. I doubt he can turn this into a wrestling match when they are fresh.
