Luke Rockhold: Vitor Belfort Is Scared And I’m Coming For Him


Luke Rockhold spoke with Fuel TV about his upcoming scrap with Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 8. The bout will be the biggest test of his career to date, facing an experienced and always dangerous UFC veteran, in ‘The Phenom’. Things got pretty heated at the weigh-ins and Luke Rockhold still seemed pretty fired up.

Check out the interview video below and stay tuned to Lowkick for more pre-UFC on FX 8 coverage, as it comes in!

  • lol at him sayin Vitor initiated it look at the tape on floor where they are supposed to stand Luke walks straight threw it into vitor what was he supposed to do fall backwards?… regardless War Rockhold down with TRT!

  • I don't believe that Luke is scared, but I do believe that he could well be nervous. Maybe not about fighting Belfort per se, but certainly about his UFC debut, fighting on network TV as the main event and fighting in Brazil and in front of, what will be, a large pro-Belfort crowd.

    Stacked on top of all that, is the fact that Rockhold knows this isn't just an "another" fight. This is The Big Show and to win this fight tonight, is to stake claim to the #1 contender's slot and a shot the Middle-Weight Belt. In short, there's a great deal of future-money and fame on the table. With all of the other stuff, the thought of blowing that opportunity must weigh on a fighter's mind. Put it all together and throw in a new environment, culture and language and it could well make a fighter nervous.

    I thought one thing for sure, that Luke seemed to get a little agitated with the lay-off question and the first two minutes of the fight and how he's going to deal with Vitor's explosiveness out of the gate. It seemed to PHO.

    Either way, we are only a few hours away from knowing whose who in this fight, so it's all a moot point, now. Soon the wheat is to be separated from the chaff.

    As a Belfort fan, I wish Luke all the best.

  • Man Rockhold is one intense dude. I don't see a guy that focused losing

  • I am not a big fan of Vitor but would like to see him vs Silva 2…..rockhold seems like a cool dude hope he does well in the ufc….think Jacare won the fight so maybe they could meet again…..

  • He got clipped in the chin and he aint even Know it….
