Luke Rockhold revealed several weeks ago that he had incurred a small tear in his MCL, and now the middleweight champ’s admitted the injury has impacted his training camp for UFC 199.

In late April, Rockhold reported on Instagram that “Had a small setback about a month ago with a tear in my MCL. But, no worries… I’m back at it. Let the #199 countdown proceed.”

But, during today’s pre-fight presser, Rockhold admitted that as a result of the injury, he hasn’t been able to grapple during this camp, and that he only began kicking “last week”.

Rockhold is scheduled to fight Michael Bisping for a second time on Saturday. The two fought before in November, 2014, and the latter was submitted in round two.
