Tomorrow night, Middleweights Luke Rockhold and Vitor Belfort will headlining UFC On FX 8. The 'trash talk' leading up to the fight has revolved mostly around Belfort's Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) prescription. Rockhold called Belfort "less of a man" because of his need for synthetic testosterone. Belfort defended his TRT use and said Rockhold would be "fighting a lion" inside the Octagon.
Almost ready for their fight, Belfort and Rockhold faced-off at Thursday's pre-fight press conference. Afterward, Rockhold went on Twitter to show his displeasure with Belfort's pose:
Press conference today. Can't stand fist to face bullshit, he will get his, I promise! instagram.com/p/ZYnlUqIaD8/— Luke Rockhold (@LukeRockhold) May 16, 2013
Rockhold and Belfort will square off Saturday night May 18 at the Arena Jaragua Jaragua do Sul in Santa Catarina, Brazil. Rockhold will be making his UFC debut after two successful defenses of his Strikeforce Middleweight title. Belfort will be coming in on a three-fight win streak at 185 lbs. since losing a title shot at UFC 126.
