Luke Rockhold Warns GSP to “Back Out” of Michael Bisping Fight, “You’re Going to Get Crushed”
By FCF Staff
After Luke Rockhold returned to the win column at UFC Fight Night 116 Saturday, the former middleweight champ sent an emphatic warning to Georges St-Pierre.
Rockhold took on David Branch ine headliner, and forced the latter to tap-out in round two, with a brutal series of ground-and-pound strikes. In his post-fight interview, Rockhold had the following words for GSP, who is set to fight 185 champ Michael Bisping, November 4th (quote via MMA Fighting):
“GSP. I don’t know what I need to do,” Rockhold said. “You want me to beat some sense into you? You don’t belong here. You’re gonna get crushed. You better back out. Get out of this thing while you still can. This is my fight. This is my fight and I’ll be there sooner than you motherf**ker. Let’s go.”
“I’m ready to go. I got no injuries,” Rockhold added. “I’ll be ready for November. Don’t embarrass yourself GSP, just back out, let me take this thing. It’s my fight.”
Rockhold was fighting for the first time on Saturday since he was knocked out by Bisping last June.
