Luke Rockhold wins, gets mad, turns his focus on ... Georges St-Pierre?
And, in a way, maybe he was. As Rockhold explained backstage after the fight, he wasn’t calling St-Pierre out by any means. He was warning him off, urging him out of the way, precisely because the former UFC welterweight champ’s scheduled comeback against Bisping at UFC 217 in November is the thing standing in way of Rockhold’s quest to take the title back from Bisping.

Conor McGregor Reacts to Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin Scoring Debacle | MMAWeekly.com
While nearly anyone asked walked away with the thought that Golovkin had clearly won the 12-round bout that was supposed to determine boxing’s new ‘Golden Boy,’ the Nevada State Athletic Commission judges mucked up the works. Adalaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 for Canelo, Dave Moretti scored the fight 115-113 for Golovkin, and Don Trella scored the fight a 114-114 draw, once again leaving boxing fans with a sour taste in their mouths.
Matches to Make After UFC Fight Night 116
Fifteen months after he ceded the
Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight throne to Michael
Bisping , Luke
Rockhold started to pick up the pieces.
American Kickboxing Academy standout and Henri Hooft protégé
overcame a slow start to strike former two-division
World Series of Fighting champion David
Branch into submission in the second round of their
UFC Fight Night 116 main event on Saturday at the PPG Paints
Arena in Pittsburgh. Branch, who entered the cage on an 11-fight
winning streak, tapped out 4:05 into Round 2.
Rockhold spent the first round getting his bearings. Branch
employed heavy pressure, did all he could to capitalize --
FightMetric showed him outlanding the favorite by a 36-19 margin in
the first round -- and seemed to have the Californian reeling with
a flurry of power punches inside the first five minutes. Rockhold
answered his aggression with some of his own in the second ground,
where he grounded, mounted and eventually finished the Renzo
Gracie -trained Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt.
In the aftermath of UFC Fight Night “Rockhold vs.

Joe Rogan Breaks Down Potential Fight Between Canelo And McGregor
“He’s the best ever,” Rogan said on his podcast. “You have to say he’s the best ever even if he never fights featherweight again. Why? Because he KO’d the best ever. The reality is Aldo’s the best ever but Conor KO’d him. You couldn’t say without the Aldo fight that Conor was the best ever. Because if you look at all the different people that both of them fought, your like wow it’s really close, it’s really interesting. Aldo has more fights. But once they actually fight, that’s it. That’s all that matters. It’s not MMA math. So you’ve got to give it to him. He (Conor McGregor) can cover distance very quickly, and he can do so in a weird way. He can do so in a way where he might stun you. He might stun you, and he might catch you early, and he hits really (expletive) hard.”

Aldo’s original plan was to fight at UFC 217, which takes place in New York City on Nov. 4.
