Luke Rockhold, former UFC middleweight champion and a BJJ black belt, has recently announced free agency – and one of the opportunities he’s looking forward to is the possibility of fighting Jake Paul.
Namely, Rockhold wants Jake Paul or his brother Logan to be “put into their place”:
It’d be fun to correct that situation, him or his brother. Or both.
They’re into spectacle, they’re YouTube kids, whatever. But they both want to legitimize themselves, but they’re both fighting little fuc*ing guys.
Jake fights a welterweight with no hands, and he barely gets through that. Then he fights Tyron Woodley, a welterweight with one hand, and Tyron’s my boy, but with all due respect, he doesn’t pull the trigger any more.
And I’ll pull the trigger, and I’ll hit my fuc*ing mark. I’m a middleweight. I’m a real fuc*ing man, at your weight, straight up. And Logan, too.
Paul has also announced that he’ll fight in MMA… And Rockhold is skeptical about it, to say the least – as well as willing to fight him in boxing:
He says he wants to fight MMA, which is bulls*hit. Now, he’s fighting Tommy Fury? Come the fuc* on.
Tommy Fury, he’s about as much of a boxer as I am a cricket player. Fuc*ing bullsh*it.
This kid wants to legitimize himself and fights Anderson Silva, his old ass, a senior citizen? I don’t know who won that fight. Do you? Could you really say he actually won that fight?
I’d put Tommy Fury to sleep in one round. I’ve boxed Andrew Tabiti back in the day when I was barefoot going into Floyd [Mayweather]’s gym. Barefoot and I could barely box at all.
I know what I’m capable of. I’ve been in with a lot of people who can throw hands.
