Rockhold isn't gonna get a title shot unless he's replacement on a two fight win streak over Phillipou and Boetsch, especially with Jacare/Mousasi coming up, the winner of that should get the next title shot.

I don't see why he wouldn't.

He's won 11 of his last 12 fights one of those wins is win over Jacare Souza... another win is over Tim Kennedy and yeah he has beaten Costa and Boetsch too.... he's right there.

It wouldn't be surprising to see him get it.

Because Jacare is on a better win streak and Rockhold vs. Jacare was a very close fight to begin with and if Mousasi beats him he'll have wins over Munoz and Jacare and that two fight win streak trumps the two fight streak over Boetsch and Phillipou.

He'd be a shoe in if there was an injury... him and Vitor have a past... his next fight should really be Weidman or Vitor honestly.
What the F is this nonsense from you and others? So Roxkhold should wait for the winner because he beat Boetsch? An already inactive guy should sit out a year just because? What the hell?

Why is everyone crying? Machida Rockhokd is a good fight and makes sense. They should put it on ufc 181 in case of injury to the title fight.

This fight makes a lot of sense. Rockhold is great, but he doesn't deserve a title fight at this point considering he is 2-1 in the UFC. Jacare has a much more impressive streak going.

lol crying? No need to be abrasive about my difference of opinion bud....

I actually disagree that Jacares win streak is better than Rockholds 11 out of 12 if not for the sole reason that Jacare is one of Luke's victims in that streak....

Either way if they wanna give Jacare a shot should he make it through Mousasi than IMO it's only right that he should have to go through Luke first should Luke not pick up a loss between than.

Ill take back crying and just call it dumb. Why are fans in favor of a guy sitting out just because? Would be a full year on the shelf. That is what you are rooting for? Over a good machida-rockhold matchup? Why?

The next shot isnt promised to anyone. Go focking best machida and take that title shot. At least Jacare would be fighting. My god. Sick of guy sitting out because they think they deserve a shot. Weidman vitor isnt for focking 4 more months.

Wow I never thought about this fight. It should be CUNG LE VS THE DRAGON. Now that would be very interesting.
