Luke Rockhold: ’I’m going to pick apart champ Chris Weidman at UFC 194’
Luke Rockhold will enter this match with champ Chris Weidman as underdog. However, he is bursting with self-esteem. He claims he is going to win and get the title.
“You saw what happened with Bisping; we built that thing up,” Rockhold said. “It was heated, and what happened went down in the cage? I picked him apart like a little boy. And that’s what I’m going to do to Weidman.”
The middleweight contender explains what motivates him to enter the Octagon.
“The closer you get, you start torturing yourself day in and day out, and you realize that this guy’s trying to take this all from you,” he said. “This guy’s making you get up out of bed when you’re beaten and broken and don’t want any more, and you’ve got to go train. This guy is training to take your livelihood and your dream. It definitely gets personal as it builds up.
“It’s already started, and I’m telling you it’s going to escalate,” concluded the former Strikeforce champ who set his eyes on the UFC gold.
