Quote of the Day: Michael Bisping Says “I’ve Sparred with Luke Rockhold…I’m The Unofficial Strikeforce Champion”
By FCF Staff
Michael Bisping appeared on this week’s edition of Spike TV’s “MMA Uncensored Live”, and while discussing Strikeforce middleweight champ Luke Rockhold, the outspoken UFC contender stated:
“Luke Rockhold? By all accounts he and Lorenz Larkin should fight and the winner of that fight — if not both of them — go over to the UFC. Are they gonna come over and be number one contenders? I don’t think so. You’re in Strikeforce, come over to the UFC and earn your place. Let me put it like this: I’ve sparred with Luke Rockhold recently and let’s just say I’m the unofficial Strikeforce champion. Sorry Luke, but these are the facts.”
Bisping (23-4) is preparing for a January 19th bout with former light-heavyweight champ Vitor Belfort, which will take place at UFC on FX 7 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Rockhold, on the other hand, will be unable to fight Lorenz Larkin as expected on January 12th due to a wrist injury.
