Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is setting the record straight before a firestorm can get started.
Rockhold took to Twitter Wednesday night to squash rumors that his fight with Vitor Belfort recently in Brazil was fixed.
“Hearing some talk about my fight with Belfort being a fix,” Rockhold wrote. “No amount of money would make me even consider taking a fall. I got caught I lost.”
Belfort, a former UFC champion who has come under scrutiny due to his use of TRT, landed a spinning heel kick to the face of Rockhold and finished him on the ground.
Rockhold was making his Octagon debut after coming over following Zuffa’s purchase of Strikeforce.
