Report: UFC’s Luke Rockhold Inks New Eight Fight Deal
By FCF Staff
Following Luke Rockhold’s impressive, second round submission win over Michael Bisping earlier this month, the middleweight contender has reportedly signed a new, multi-fight deal with the UFC.
On the latest edition of “UFC Tonight”, it was reported that Rockhold’s new deal is for eight fights. In addition, UFC President Dana White confirmed that the former Strikeforce champ is going to be booked for another high profile bout. If Rockhold wins that a title shot will come next.
The 30 year-old Rockhold (13-2) is currently riding a three fight win streak, which includes finish victories over Costas Philippou, Tim Boetsch and Bisping.
The well rounded fighter is currently ranked #5 in the UFC’s 185 division.
