Yoel wouldn't make it to decision with Rockhold.

 

What round would he ko/sub him?

vert do you not understand that the mma media is going to cover both cards the same??? This is not a huge ppv we are talking about here. If you told me UFC 217: GSP vs Bisping, your thought process would hold some weight. The fact is we are talking about a ppv that is likely not even drawing over 150k

Would have been a good fight to add some weight to that card or better yet as you mentioned put it on 217...but Rockhold didn't want to 'wait' for his next fight.

it would do nothing, i love Motown vs Ferguson but literally no one is buying that damn card

 

Its best selling point at this time is Derrick Lewis now because of the whole hurricane chit hitting various forms of media outside of mma. Other than that, the card has nothing in terms of a draw. I'm explaining to you that Rockhold vs Romero is not adding buys to a ppv and no one is ordering this damn ppv anyway. SO WHY SHOULD ROCKHOLD FIGHT ON A CARD SEEN BY LESS PEOPLE FOR THE SAME MONEY?????

the fact is that Luke's jaw is so glassy nowadays he cannot afford to risk fighting a heavy hitter like Yoel. Branch prob has more than enough power to KO him though but he has LOL BAD striking volume output (http://www.fightmetr...2c55d1d2e67773b) ....I'm sure Luke saw this and cherry picked him for a fight...

 

 

This is a double edge sword fight for Rockhold...he better win this CONVINCINGLY via KO or SUB or he wont do much for his chances of being next in line for a title shot....if he loses he could be kicked out of the top 10 lol.

then there should be no reason to duck Yoel like he did....yoel is the #2 guy and if you want to make a case to be next in line why not beat the #2 guy convincingly? Its a much better argument than beating a #9 guy.

Possibly. Either way I'm getting paid, put in a parlay a month ago that just needs Luke + GGG to go through for 1200

Just have a feeling Luke takes him lightly and pays the price again
