The former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold recently failed in making his successful light heavyweight debut against Jan Blachowicz. Fellow top-ranked UFC light heavyweight Anthony Smith is apparently too happy with the result and the way in which the fight ended.
Blachowicz was a heavy underdog but turned around the odds and brutally knocked Rockhold out cold.
Smith and Rockhold have been having a bitter rivalry and have developed quite a feud and have a lot of bad blood between them.
Smith was recently in a conversation with MMA on Sirius XM, he revealed that he is happy that the MMA Gods saw that Rockhold was punished for all his trash talk and for overlooking Jan and that he got KOed.
Here’s what he had to say:
I would have loved to have been the guy that put Rockhold out like that, but I think it serves him right. All the trash talk, all the ‘Anthony Smith is a bum, Gustafsson’s gonna roll over him and I’m gonna starch Jan,’ and just the disrespect and just looking right over Jan. I’ve been telling everybody that asks, Jan Blachowicz is the dark horse in the division. He’s one of the most dangerous dudes and part of it is because he’s so quiet. He keeps his mouth shut and he does his thing and he keeps on just walking through people. He does have the loss to Thiago but I think it’s safe to say that there’s nothing to blink your eyes at there.
