Luke Rockhold is confident that he is the man to beat Jon Jones and dethrone him as UFC light heavyweight champion.

A few months ago Rockhold made it known that he is ready to make his move to the UFC light heavyweight division after having a successful run at middleweight. During his time in the 185-pound division, he earned the middleweight title.

The former UFC champion has called out Jones in the past and has done it yet again. He did so during a recent interview on The MMA Hour.

“I don’t believe there’s a man in the world who can compete with me on the ground,” Rockhold said. “I don’t believe Jon is that polished on the feet. I think he adjusts, I think he’s tactical. I think I have the skills to beat him there, I have the skills to beat him on the ground, and I think the wrestling is pretty much nullified, I don’t really think it plays much of a factor.”

Rockhold is set to make his light heavyweight debut against Jan Blachowicz at UFC 239. Jones is set to headline this show when he makes his next title defense against Thiago Santos.

This event takes place on July 6th as part of International Fight week in Las Vegas, Nevada at the T-Mobile Arena. The main card will air on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.

Anthony Smith has a tough test ahead of him in Alexander Gustafsson.

However, he still has some business to settle with ex-UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold. Rockhold spoke ill of “Lionheart” late last year, sparking an angry reaction from Smith, who said he’d fight Rockhold in a Wal-Mart parking lot if need be. Now that Rockhold has moved up to 205 pounds, that fight has become more likely than ever.

Speaking at the UFC Seasonal Press Conference today (Fri. April 12, 2019), Smith doubled down on his comments, vowing to “drill a hole” through Rockhold’s face:

“Yeah, that guys is a f*cking piece of sh*t. F*ck Luke Rockhold. The first opportunity I get, I’m going to drill a hole through Luke Rockhold’s f*cking face, I promise you guys that.”

“The first opportunity I get after this fight, doesn’t matter what happens, I’ll fight Luke Rockhold with one f*cking leg. I’m gonna beat that dude’s f*cking a**.”

Before that can happen, Smith will have to face three-time 205-pound title challenger Alexander Gustafsson. They’ll headline UFC Stockholm on June 1. Rockhold makes his light heavyweight debut against Jan Blachowicz at the stacked UFC 239 pay-per-view (PPV) card in July.
