Luke Rockhold Interested In Chris Weidman Fight In New York

Luke Rockhold is taking on Lyoto Machida at UFC on FOX 15, and if the former Strikeforce champ can score a win, it might just put him next in line for a crack at the middleweight belt and its current holder: Chris Weidman. Which is certainly a shot Rockhold wants a chance to take, and it would be made all the better if it took place at Madison Square Garden.

During the UFC on FOX 15 open workouts today, Rockhold had this to say:

“I got nothing against New York and I like Chris [Weidman] a lot, just like a big stage, and of course fighting for the title is my goal, and fighting at MSG would be amazing. It would be the first [UFC] fight at that stadium, it would historic, and I’d love to make history and maybe get gold at the same time. Chris is a great guy. I like Chris a lot. But we both want one thing – with both want to be the best and we both want the gold. What better match-up for MSG than one for the belt? East Coast/West Coast, California/New York – it’s hard to not see it as the perfect match-up.”

GSP’s Former Manager Says He Believes GSP Will Be Back For 1 Last Fight

Fight promoter and Georges St-Pierre’s former manager Stephane Patry spoke to “The MMA Hour”‘s Ariel Helwani on Monday’s and said that he believes GSP will return to the UFC for at least one more fight.

Heres what he had to say on the matter:

“Georges is going to come back for one fight, I can’t say he’s going to come back and go on a title run and do 10 fights, but I know for sure he’s going to come back for one fight. It’s one of those things where, Georges got injured, which is something that wasn’t expected, and Anderson Silva got caught with steroids, so I mean, there’s a lot of things that have happened in the past few months that can change the scenario a little bit. But I know that Georges has the will, and he wants one more fight. He doesn’t want to leave the sport with that fight with [Johny] Hendricks, I know that for a fact. He’s going to come back for that one fight everyone wants to see, Everyone points to Anderson Silva, if he was going to fight on that card, then Dana didn’t offer him Anderson Silva. So he’s not going to come back for one fight that doesn’t mean much in the history of mixed martial arts. He wants to make history with that one fight. With what happened with Anderson in that one fight and his problems with the commission, I don’t know what’s going to happen now.”

Silva has had a rough last few years and lost three out of four bouts during that time period. His last time inside the cage isn’t much to talk about either, former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir knocked Silva out in less than two minutes.

Undefeated Bellator MMA World Middleweight Champion Brandon “Bull” Halsey (8-0) looks to defend his belt for the first time when he takes on towering Hawaiian scrapper Kendall “Da Spyder” Grove (21-14).

The contest serves as the headlining bout of “Bellator: Halsey vs. Grove,” which takes place on Friday, May 15, at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. The night’s main card airs live on Spike TV, while preliminary bouts stream on Spike.com.

Tickets for “Bellator: Halsey vs. Grove,” which start at just $50, are already on sale at Pechanga.com and the Pechanga Resort & Casino box office.

Doors for “Bellator: Halsey vs. Grove” open at 4 p.m. PT local time, and the first contest takes place one hour later. Additional bouts will be announced shortly.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing another exciting world championship fight to a great sell-out crowd at Pechanga Resort & Casino this May,” said Bellator President Scott Coker. “Our middleweight champion Brandon Halsey has been extremely impressive through his first 8 fights, and I’m looking forward to watching him defend his belt for the first time against Kendall Grove.”

Halsey, from Huntington Beach, Calif., is a former Division I wrestler at Cal-State Bakersfield who turned his attention to mixed martial arts in 2012 and has kept his professional record unblemished through the first eight matchups of his career. At just 28 years old, Halsey already owns six victories under the Bellator MMA banner, including a four-man tournament victory to earn a shot at the belt and a stunning, 35-second stoppage of then-champ Alexander Shlemenko to claim the Bellator MMA World Middleweight Championship.

Three of Halsey’s past four wins have come by way of first-round stoppage.

Meanwhile, the 32-year-old Grove has been fighting professionally for nearly 12 years. The Hawaiian-born Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt is a former winner of “The Ultimate Fighter,” who has earned 15 of his 21 career victories by stoppage, include 10 wins by submission.

The 6-foot-6 Grove signed with Bellator MMA in 2013 and earned his shot at the belt with an October submission win over former Bellator MMA World Light Heavyweight Champion Christian M’Pumbu.
