Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold will be out of action for a few weeks, as the fighter suffered a broken hand in his most recent win over Keith Jardine. Rockhold revealed the news on his Facebook page recently.
“Thanks for all the love everybody couldn’t do it without u guys! So I did break my hand but it’s a clean break no surgery, minor price to pay for the sweet taste of VICTORY!!!” Rockhold wrote. “4-6 weeks b back in business.”
Rockhold, a member of American Kickboxing Academy, made his first successful title defense against Jardine in the main event of Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine. The broken hand will not require surgery, just time to heal on its own.
