Luke Rockhold Says Chris Weidman Has Been Harassing Dana White For A Rematch

UFC Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold said in a recent interview that Chris Weidman has been “begging” and “harassing” UFC President Dana White to get the first shot at taking back his titel.

Rockhold defeated Weidman for the title at UFC 194. Heres what he had to say on the matter:

“We’ve talked [Rockhold and UFC President Dana White] and from what I see there’s a couple of fights on the table — there’s Yoel Romero and there’s Chris Weidman. I think Chris Weidman, he’s been the longtime reigning champion, I know he’s begging for a shot. He’s been harassing Dana (White) from what I understand since the day after the fight and I’m not opposed to giving him what he wants if he really likes it. I’m not happy with my performance against Chris so if we’re going to do it again, I’m going to go out there looking to execute and be perfect next time. I want to make a statement to where he never wants to come back and fight me again. That’s what I’m looking to do every time.”
