Just two days after UFC President Dana White scrapped plans for Michael Bisping to fight Georges St-Pierre and set up the match between Bisping and Yoel Romero, another contender has surfaced and called for his next shot. Luke Rockhold would like to return and take on Gegard Mousasi in July.
Luke Rockhold calls for Gegard Mousasi in July
The former middleweight champion took to his Instagram account (see below) to stake his claim on Mousasi.
Rockhold (15-3) hasn’t fought since he lost the belt to Bisping at UFC 199 last June. He has made it crystal clear of his displeasure for the promotion ever since they announced the GSP vs. Bisping bout, but if they turn things around and put Romero in there then he could sing a different tune.
Mousasi (42–6–2) is riding an impressive five-fight winning streak. He has beaten four of the five by knockout and most recently finished former champion Chris Weidman at UFC 210 in April.
