Now, Ronaldo Souza is calling Luke Rockhold “Chicken” for not scheduling their rematch. Read more for details…
If you recall, the two UFC had a fight last year, but needed to reschedule, Rockhold hasn’t accepted a new date for their postponed rematch!
When MMA Fighting asked Ronaldo Souza, he held nothing back saying “Rockhold is afraid!” He didn’t stop there. The 37-year-old mixed martial artist, submission grappler and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner went in, saying:
“He said he’s hurt, but I see him training all the time on social media, and then he said he wanted to face Jon Jones in a grappling match in January. That makes no sense. He’s not hurt. If he’s injured, he can’t grapple Jon Jones. That’s impossible.”
“It bothers me because I wanted to fight in November. Injuries are part of the sport, it happens, but I never thought Rockhold would fake an injury. At first I thought he was hurt, but now I see he just chickened out. It’s clear he’s not injured.”
With the Rockhold fight still without a date, he will be returning to the Octagon to Yoel Romero. He is set to fight Tim Boetsch at UFC 208 in February.
“At least I have an opponent and a fight. Fighters that stayed inactive for a long time don’t do well in the end, so I wanted to stay active. My intention was to fight a top contender in the division, but everyone is hurt.”
“This guy is trouble. Tim Boetsch is trouble. He has a heavy hand and can complicate anyone, but I will stay focused to put on a great fight and win. His power is incredible. He’s really dangerous. If you blink, you might wake up later wondering what happened.”
