Luke Rockhold: People Who Use TRT Are “Lacking Something”

Luke Rockhold can make a statement in his Octagon debut this Saturday night, as he faces former UFC champion Vitor Belfort in the main event of UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold.

While he enters as the most recent Strikeforce middleweight champion, more of the questioned directed at Rockhold have concerned TRT. No, the fighter doesn’t use it, but his opponent does.

“I believe people who need TRT are lacking something,” said Rockhold, during the pre-fight press conference Thursday. “That will show in this fight.”

Rockhold (10-1) has won nine straight fights, including decision wins over Tim Kennedy and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza. He feels that in Belfort, he’ll know exactly what is coming.

“Vitor is the dinosaur, the T-Rex he calls himself,” Rockhold stated. “I am young, growing and he underestimates what I bring to the table.”

FightLine will have complete coverage of the entire event beginning Saturday afternoon with the prelims.
