Luke Rockhold injured

Michael Bisping believes Luke Rockhold is ‘done’ following UFC 239 KO loss

Luke Rockhold moved to light heavyweight because it was supposed to be better for his chin, and his overall health. But, that was not the case as at UFC 239, in the second round, he was knocked out by Jan Blachowicz. For Michael Bisping, who was bitter rivals of Rockhold’s he says he took no joy in seeing him getting knocked out and actually felt better for him.

“The amount of messages that people have sent me, because everyone seems to think that I’m gonna take pleasure in seeing Luke knocked out like that, and it’s the opposite. I really feel for the guy,” Bisping said on his  ‘Believe You Me podcast. “I do, I feel bad for him. It’s a real shame. Not only did he get his jaw broke, but he’s now been knocked out cold, viciously, in three of his last four fights. And I can’t help but think that he’s done. Now that doesn’t mean that he’s going to be. What he could do is come back and prove everybody wrong! Prove me wrong. That’s what I would’ve done. That’s kind of what I did. And, if he does that.. Then my god! He will have my respect forever!”

Although he took no joy, Michael Bisping believes Luke Rockhold career is over following yet another knockout loss.

“But I gotta say, the writing on the wall. It looks like his career is over.” Michael Bisping said of Luke Rockhold. “It is not only only the fact that A, he’s been knocked out three times out of his last four. It’s not only the fact that he’s got a broken jaw, and that’s going to take some time to heal back from. It’s also the fact that it’s one thing getting knocked out cold once and coming back from that. But when you’ve been knocked out cold three of your last four, I mean, that is some psychological demons to overcome.”
