LUKE ROCKHOLD TO MOVE UP IN WEIGHT TO CHALLENGE JONES

Former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is calling out Jon Jones.

Rockhold spoke with TMZ about Jones’ winning performance, and how well he matches up with “Bones.”

“Just hold tight, I’m coming princess.”

“I thought he looked beatable,” Rockhold said. “He’s good on the feet, he’s tactical, Jon, he adjusts and he fights to his advantages. I like my advantages versus his. He’s great, he’s good everywhere, but I don’t think he’s the most technical on the feet. I don’t think he’s got the most power.

“I’m a different man at this weight, the power behind me. I’m moving up to get after him, so that’s what I’m here for.”

“Health-wise I’m finally back to health, it feels good to fight at my natural weight,” Rockhold said. “The last couple of years, I’ve been compromising myself to get down to ‘85 and my body just falls apart in training camp the last few weeks to get your body fat so low. I’ve never felt so bad at my last fight during the weight cut.

“So it feels right, I feel healthy, I feel comfortable, I’m excited to take down these light heavyweights. I just don’t see a lot there.”
