Tonight, at UFC 239 Luke Rockhold will make his light heavyweight debut, when he takes on Jan Blachowicz. Who wins?

I’m going with Rockhold here. I think he makes a big debut and wins by TKO in the 3rd round. I think his motivation about wanting to make a successful light heavyweight debut pushes him to go for the finish, despite being ahead on the cards.

I think this is a winnable fight for Luke Rockhold. Jan Blachowicz tends to come up short against strong grapplers so as long as Rockhold doesn’t try and stand and bang with Blachowicz, he should be able to pick up a win in his new weight class.

Don’t care because the UFC needs to stop trying to make Luke Rockhold happen. Michael Bisping was destined to be another Dan Marino, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Cowboy Cerrone; Bisping was never going to win a title but Luke Rockhold is a dummy. That’s Luke Rockhold’s legacy, losing to Bisping because of his inflated ego and getting destroyed by Yoel Romero. Let’s go with Rockhold just so I can hate watch his next fight.
