Luke Rockhold's dominant win over Costas Philippou not enough to earn Vitor Belfort rematch ... yet Luke Rockhold did what he said he was going to do. The former Strikeforce middleweight champion stopped Constantinos Philippou in the main event of UFC Fight Night 35, dropping the hard-hitting Cypriot in the very first round of their FOX Sports 1 headliner, which took place on Wednesday night (Jan. 15, 2014) inside Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia. See how it all went down in our "Rockhold vs. Philippou" results and live play-by-play thread by clicking here. Following the liver kick heard 'round the "Peach State," Rockhold told cageside commentator Jon Anik that he was still pining for a Vitor Belfort rematch, in an attempt to erase the painful memory of going beddy-bye in Brazil last year by way of "Phenom"-enal head kick. And he even managed to sneak in a testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) barb in the process. The good news is, the win over Philippou puts him back into the mix at 185 pound ...

You'd think fans would recognize that after defeating Anderson Silva not once but twice, Chris Weidman is something special. But nope, there's a lot of "Vitor's coming for the belt." You're all going to learn (slowly apparently) that Chris isn't Luke Rockhold. He isn't Michael Bisping. He's also not a 40-year-old Dan Henderson. Vitor is and always has been a frontrunner, and if he can't get rid of Chris quickly (and he won't), Chris will impose his will and submit Vitor by round number three.

Vitor Belfort says 'earned' next UFC middleweight title shot through hard work, 'shocking' main event performances In case you didn't know, Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen have something in common. Their previous two losses have come to arguably the top two pound-for-pound mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters in the world in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Middleweight champion Anderson Silva. But, that's where their similarities stop. When it comes to earning and receiving world title shots, Sonnen has parlayed his quick wit and gift of gab into dreams of gold, getting the chance to face "Bones" at UFC 159 fresh of his loss to "The Spider" eight months prior at UFC 148. Belfort, meanwhile, chooses to play the silent warrior role, letting his actions inside the Octagon speak for him. And if his last two knockout performances against Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold are any indication, the actions of "The Phenom" aren't politely requesting another title shot, but ...
Vitor Belfort opts to let his actions inside the Octagon earn him another UFC world title shot rather than talking his way into them. And after knocking out Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping in "shocking" fashion, Belfort awaits championship call.
UFC BEST KNOCKOUTS OF 2013 THUS FAR ~ 1 – Junior dos Santos-Mark Hunt - UFC 160 Belfort’s spinning finish of Rockhold was undoubtedly impressive. But not to be undone, Belfort’s countryman Junior dos Santos delivered the same kick and the same finish a week later, taking out Mark Hunt in the third round. But what made this knockout the best of the year thus far wasn’t just that it was a heavyweight pulling off a move with a high degree of difficulty; it was that dos Santos could have taken his foot off the gas in the final round and coasted to a decision win, but instead he upped the ante against a dangerous foe and went for the knockout. That’s worth a number one slot for sure. 2 - Vitor Belfort-Luke Rockhold - UFC on FX 8 For years, the mantra for anyone fighting Vitor Belfort was to watch out for his fast hands. Well, in 2013 opponents got a new problem to deal with: his feet. First, Belfort finished Michael Bisping in January with a flurry that began with a kick to the head. But then “The ...
Costa Philippou wants Michael Bisping fight... "It’s a win-win for everybody. I’m not just anybody, I’m ranked, he can see that. I noticed Luke Rockhold called him out today, but like Bisping said he hasn’t won a single fight in the UFC and he told him to go get a few wins in the UFC and then come back. He can’t really say that about me. I’ve been in the UFC for a couple of years and I’ve been winning. He wants a better opponent, let him step in and prove it." ~Philippou
Seriously, Luke Rockhold is in the top spot for MMA fighters who look like they belong in the next G.I. Joe movie. With his looks and that name all he'll need is to wear some camouflage and look angry while standing next to The Rock.

Scores: Me - 52 Jeff - 51 Scooby - 51 Danny - 49 Middleweight bout: Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort (22-10) vs. Luke Rockhold (10-1) Predicted Winner: Luke Rockhold - Rockhold was the last man to hold the Strikeforce Middleweight Championship winning it from Ronaldo Souza and defending it twice (against Tim Kennedy and Keith Jardine). Rockhold is not neccesarily brilliant at any one thing but has a very good overall skill set. He shall be making his debut against MMA legend Vitor Belfort who is coming off the back of that brilliant win against Michael Bisping. With Belfort there is always that possibillity of an explosive KO, despite advancing years Belfort still has ridiculously fast hands but his cardio can let him down. As much as I like Belfort my feeling is that Rockhold shall survive some earlier scares and then go on to take the decision victory.

Luke Rockhold opens up as a -130 favourite over Vitor Belfort. Do people think this is ridiculous or justified? (Adam)
It's official. UFC on FX 8 gets the main event of Vitor Belfort vs. Luke Rockhold on May 18, 2013 at the Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil.
long-rumored bout pitting UFC veteran Vitor Belfort (22-10) against former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold (10-1) is slated to headline a UFC event in Brazil in the coming months. Brazilian outlet Tatame first reported the news, which was later confirmed by UFC President Dana White. A date and venue for the event were not specified, though White expects the event to take place in the second quarter of 2013. White previously hinted the match-up to be in the works last month during UFC on FOX 6's pre-fight scrum. Given the state of the middleweight division, the bout will likely go a long way towards determining a challenger for UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. A lingering shoulder injury has sidelined Rockhold, 28, for the last six months, sinking anticipated Strikeforce title defenses against undefeated prospect Lorenz Larkin in both November and January. After narrowly upsetting Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza to capture the Strikeforce strap, Rockhold successfully defended his belt twice ...
Luke Rockhold talks about his pending UFC debut with Sherdog.com’s Greg Savage.
Lorenz Larkin vs. Francis Carmont Added To UFC On FOX 7 According to a report by Dan Alegria of The Press-Enterprise, Lorenz Larkin will make his UFC debut against Francis Carmont at UFC On FOX: Henderson Vs. Melendez. The card takes place April 20 from San Jose. Larkin (13-0) moved down to middleweight after a loss to Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal. The decision was later changed to a no-contest after Lawal failed his post-fight drug test. Larkin had a Strikeforce title match with Luke Rockhold set, but Rockhold was unable to heal in time for the two to meet. The promotion folded in January. Carmont (20-7) has won nine consecutive fights, including four straight since debuting in the UFC in 2011. He has scored two submission victories and two decision wins inside the Octagon.
Anderson Silva's manager Ed Soares has stated that he would rather Anderson not fight Chris Weidman right now. He feels Weidman is a phenomenal fighter but needs 1-2 more big wins to get enough name value to fight Anderson. Fights with Cung Le and Luke Rockhold seem more on the radar of Soares and Silva. Who do u think should face Anderson next? Eric
Dana White suggested Luke Rockhold's first UFC fight may be against Vitor Belfort, and said if Belfort can beat him and string up a few more wins, it would be hard to not give him another title shot. Presumably 185, although apparently Vitor is confused, having challenged Jon Jones last week. Should be noted that Anderson Silva apparently wants Rockhold in a champion vs. champion match. Dana also noted that Quinton Jackson had made over $15 million during his UFC career but was acting like an *** and shot himself in the foot with his behavior over the past week. Jackson is insisting he's done with MMA and spent one media session playing video games and barely mumbling answers to the press.
No deal is done and no contracts are signed but UFC President Dana White says right now they are looking at putting former Strikeforce champ Luke Rockhold against Vitor Belfort later this year.
Middleweight contender Vitor Belfort has indicated his desire to fight a champion. Luke Rockhold finished his time in Strikeforce as middleweight champion. Sounds like a match to make. Pressed on future opponents for the former UFC light heavyweight champion on the heels of his spectacular finish of Michael Bisping, UFC president Dana White told reporters on Thursday that he's looking to put together a bout between Belfort and Rockhold. "Rockhold," White said. "That's what we're talking about." In the case of Rockhold (10-1), a bout with the former champion could be exactly what the fighter needs to raise his profile with the masses. The American Kickboxing Academy fighter rolled over the competition in Strikeforce and defeated Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza to win that title on Sept. 10, 2011. But Rockhold's rise came during Strikeforce's slow, painful downfall, so he's not yet as big a name as his skills would seem to suggest. For Belfort, meanwhile, the future path isn't quite so clear-cut. He's lost to both m ...

Luke Rockhold would love nothing more than to join his Strikeforce stablemates Daniel Cormier and Gilbert Melendez at UFC on Fox 7 for his Octagon debut. And he wants to do it against the red-hot -- albeit under the radar -- Constantinos Philippou.
Luke Rockhold wants Costa Philippou for his first fight on UFC on Fox 7. If that happens the UFC on Fox 7 is shaping up to be a great crossover card.

A lot of fans will fight tooth and nail about fighters OUTSIDE of the UFC (i.e. Gil Melendez, Fedor Emelianenko, Eddie Alvarez, Luke Rockhold, Gegard Mousasi) shouldn't be considered in top 5-10 rankings (whether current or all time rankings). What's your take on the subject? Should guys like Gil Melendez be considered one of the best guys in the world without ever having stepped inside the 'UFC octagon?'
Strikeforce looks to rebound in 2013 after plague of cancellations Strikeforce, the sister promotion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), is looking to make a statement on their January 12th show despite two recent cancellations due to injured fighters. The show, which features current Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez (21 – 2) taking on challenger Pat “Bam Bam” Healy (28 – 16) as its main event, will take place in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in the USA. Strikeforce has been under criticism lately for cancelling two recent events, one on September 29th, when the two lightweights were originally scheduled to clash, and another on November 3rd when two other fighters, Frank Mir and Luke Rockhold both went on the shelf. Melendez suffered a separated shoulder while training for the September fight with his sparring partner, UFC fighter Jake Shields. “I could tell something was not in the right position” Melendez stated about the injury. Healy, a long time veteran of the cage, i ...

Anderson Silva Requests 10-Fight UFC Contract During a recent fan chat held over the weekend, UFC president Dana White was asked about the future of UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. "The Spider" is coming off a victory over Stephen Bonnar and has two fights left on his current deal. White responded that Silva turned down an eight-fight extension, saying, "(Expletive) that, I want a 10-fight deal." Silva, who is 37 years old, fought twice this year and twice in 2011. If he kept that up, he would be finishing his contract around 42 or 43 years old. The Brazilian is looking to match up with UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in a super-fight several years in the making, but the bout has hit several snags in recent days. The middleweight division remains a cloudy mess at the top, but could be getting a boost with the expected inclusion of Strikeforce 185-pound champion Luke Rockhold.

announced the cancellation of the Nov. 3 event due to injuries to Frank Mir and Luke Rockhold.
Sources close to BJPENN.com informed us just moments ago that Strikeforce operations are set to cease and that the promotion is going out of business. The rumor comes shortly after news broke that Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold (10-1 MMA, 9-0 SF) was forced to pull out of his title fight with Lorenz Larkin (13-0 MMA, 4-0 SF) due to a wrist injury. The middleweight title fight was the second key loss to a scheduled November 3rd card, following the loss of a heavyweight main event bout between Frank Mir and Daniel Cormier.
With the recent Strikeforce card cancellation, and injuries to main event fighters like Gilbert Melendez and Luke Rockhold, should the UFC just absorb Strikeforce, or would you like to see the promotion restocked with fighters and remain independent? (Your answer could be used in the upcoming issue).

Nate Marquardt & Luke Rockhold whats next? Nate "The Great" Marquardt (32-10-2) scored on the most vicous KO's this writer can remember againt a game Tyron Woodley (10-1) Saturday night here in Portland Oregon. The back and forth affair saw Marquardt win most of the stand up exchanges while generally nullifying Woodley's vaunted wrestling offense. I knew this was going to be an exciting fight because I expected Nate to have the wrestling prowess to keep things standing. The vicious combination of elbows and short shots Nate finished the fight with against the cage had me genuinely concerned for the well being of Woodley. However Woodley is as tough as he humble and he was not seriously injured. The UFC always has an eye on the big picture and in the immediate aftermath of this fight one could not help but wonder what might be next for Marquardt. He still has a ways to go to get back fully into the good graces of Dana White and the UFC but halting his use of TRT surely has already benefitted his cause. Wit ...
