Kelvin Gastelum roasts Luke Rockhold with social media poll

Recommended Posts

Earlier this week, on the latest edition of The MMA Hour, former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold called for a fight the division’s interim champion Robert Whittaker.

 

“They have to make up backup plans,” Rockhold said. “They’re trying to make fights like [me versus] Yoel Romero right now. Why would I fight Yoel Romero no one clearcut fighting Whittaker? Obviously I want to fight for the title if that’s available, I’m not going to f*cking sign any fight. I want to fight for the title, and if that’s available, that what I’m going to do.”

 

Rockhold, of course, is not the only middleweight with his sights set on Whittaker. Shortly after knocking out former champion Michael Bisping late last month, surging contender Kelvin Gastelum also called for a battle with the interim champion.

 

Evidently feeling that Rockhold is trying to swipe his favored matchup, Gastelum took to Twitter to ask the fans what they’d prefer. Though he doesn’t mentioned Rockhold explicitly, it’s quite clear that’s who he’s referencing in “option A”, as Rockhold recently emerged from a prolonged layoff to defeat David Branch, who only recently joined the UFC fold.

 

See Kelvin Gastelum’s Tweet below:

 

“A: Fought only once in 18 months against someone who wasn’t even competing in the UFC a year ago,” Gastelum said.

 

“B: Fought 4 times in 12 months, 3 of them in the main event in the last 8 months against former champions ranked in top 10 of the division,” he continued, referencing himself, including the fact that, unlike Rockhold, he doesn’t have a modelling career.

 

 

 

Who would you prefer to see fight Robert Whittaker? Luke Rockhold or Kelvin Gastelum?

Well given that Bisping beat Rockhold, and was on his way to winning against Kelvin until fat lad caught him with a lucky shot when he was still concussed from fighting the greasy one, I think the next shot should surely go to the Count?

 

Let's pretend the GSP nonsense never happened and unify the belts like they should have done before Bobby Duckles conveniently grazed his knee.

Yes that was a big punch. Are you trying to argue that one left is enough to earn him a title shot now? Lol.

 

Kelvin is fast and has a huge left hand, that was enough to put away Bisping, Vitor, Kennedy and probably most of the middleweight division. But not Weidman. Chris recovered immediately and ended up dominating every second of that fight both on the ground and on the feet.

 

Stay salty my friend.

Brunson - 77 inch reach

Romero - 73 inch reach

Kelvin - 71 inch reach

Lucky punches happen in this sport. That's how Spits both earned and lost the belt.

This is your best bit of trolling yet. I tip my bowler hat and lift my tea cup to you, kind sir.

Bisping KO'ing Rockhold was not lucky at all.....Rockhold has the worst striking defense in mma.

They can say whatever but Whittaker is NOT the champ because he did not beat the champ.

 

The last guy to hold the belt was GSP,before that Bisping,so if GSP quits,it goes to the LAST belt holder or since Kelvin beat Bsiping,he would then get it.

How do they figure Whittaker gets the belt,just because they say so?You don't just hand out belts,you have to EARN them by beating the current belt holder/champ.

 

As to Luke,he simply thinks he is better than he is and that is his downfall,he needs to wake up or really fall off the way BJ Penn did because he thought he was better than he really was.I also saw signs in the Weidman fight that Luke did not seem to have all that good a cardio either.
