Luke Rockhold: It's alligator season, so I came for the killPosted on September 11, 2011, 10:30 AM by Joey Santosus
Newly crowned Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold, who dethroned Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza to lay claim to the title, looks back on the victory, as well as the rough road that was traveled to reach this point in his career. Rockhold admits that his past injuries made him feel "cursed" at times, but says he pushed through and prepared well to get back on track.
"Its pretty unbelievable - to get here after that whole layoff. I always believed in myself, but going in there and never being out of the first round and then having to go for a five-round war like that - don't want to have to do that again. But, I prepared well, watched tons of swamp people, and you know it's alligator season, so I came for the kill."
