In a great night of fights, Luke Rockhold dethrones Chris Weidman to become the new UFC Middleweight Champion.
This fight brought back a lot of memories form my days at American Kickboxing Academy. In the summer of 2007, I remember sitting on the mats the first day Luke and I met. At the time, he didn’t have many fights. he had recently made the transition to MMA from BJJ.
Luke went on to tell me how he was living at home with his mother to enable him to get his career started.
8 years have passed since then. And, Luke is the NEW UFC Middleweight Champion.
