Luke Rockhold, the Strikeforce middleweight champion, let his feelings known Saturday night after UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II via Twitter. Now, Rockhold’s upcoming opponent, Tim Kennedy, let it be known that he didn’t feel like “The Spider” acted like a champion in his victory over Chael Sonnen.
“Wipe grease on your arms, grab your opponent shorts, and knee them in the face when they are down. That’s how champions should act?” Kennedy posted.
Kennedy will face Rockhold this coming Saturday night in the main event of Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy on Showtime.
