Luke Rockhold Responds to Michael Bisping: ‘I’ll see you in the UFC’

Michael Bisping has never been shy to speak his mind.  When he feel likes he is the better man, he will be vocal.  This was this case when Bisping was on MMA Uncensored on Spike TV.  During the episode, Bisping claimed he got the better of the exchanges when he trained with current Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.

Luke would respond via Twitter earlier today to Bisping’s comments.

@bisping that’s an interesting take, I’ll see you in the UFC soon my friend.

Interesting words from Rockhold, who recently had to bow out of the final Strikeforce card where he was set to take on Lorenz Larken.  Bisping has never shied away from controversy, and it would appear that these two have no problems facing each other, despite training with each other several times in the past.

Rockhold, who trains out of American Kickboxing Academy, will be heading to the UFC after Strikeforce closes up shop. A potential clash from these two fighters would be entertaining in that they both love to keep the fight standing.  Who would get the better of the exchanges in a real fight?

We just may find out.  Bisping is set to take on Vitor Belfort, who is one of the most powerful punchers in the division.  If Bisping is victorious, then a Rockhold fight is appropriate since Anderson Silva has made it clear he wants either GSP or Jon Jones for his next fights.  Bisping has yet to respond to Rockhold, but it will be interesting to see what type of twitter war ensues.
