Luke Rockhold Reveals Long List Of UFC 230 Injuries


The craziness of UFC 230 continues to surprise us all. Earlier today (Oct. 19, 2018) news arrived that Luke Rockhold had been forced off the card due to injuries.

Rockhold, 34, was scheduled to fight former middleweight champion Chris Weidman. The two were set for a rematch in the co-main event of UFC 230 in Madison Square Garden on November 3. That, however, will not be happening.

Rockhold apparently has several significant injuries he’s dealing with. ESPN’s Ariel Helwani spoke with the dejected former middleweight champion just prior to this Twitter post:

Rockhold said he tried to make it to UFC 230, but could not compete without “at least one weapon.” With that said, he hopes to return sooner than later:

It’s unknown if Weidman will remain on UFC 230. The UFC is reportedly working on finding him a replacement opponent for the card.

Either way, this is a major setback for Rockhold who was looking to rebound from a devastating KO loss at the hands of Yoel Romero this February.
