Luke Rockhold Wants to Welcome the UFC’s Best to Strikeforce Hexagon

Luke Rockhold made the first successful defense of his Strikeforce middleweight title, and now he’s ready for the next challenge.

He balked at the mention of current top contender Tim Kennedy as a next opponent in his post fight speech, but said at the press conference afterwards that if that’s what Strikeforce wants he’ll take it.

Rockhold doesn’t hesitate however to welcome in challengers from the UFC to face him in Strikeforce.

“I always look for bigger and better things and if the UFC wants to bring in some top contenders, I’m more than welcome to welcome them in our hexagon,” said Rockhold.
