The beef between former UFC champions Fabricio Werdum and Luke Rockhold remains strong. The former heavyweight champion took to Instagram to tease Rockhold one more time, following his KO loss to Michael Bisping at UFC 199.

Werdum took aim at Rockhold in response to previous comments from the now former middleweight champion.

"I'm answering what he talked about me," Werdum wrote.

In his last outing, Fabricio Werdum was knocked out in the first round by Stipe Miocic, at UFC 198, in May, in his home country of Brazil. The beef between Werdum and Rockhold goes back when Werdum defeated Rockhold's teammate at American Kickboxing Academy, Cain Velasquez.

Werdum is now set to face off against Ben Rothwell in the co-main event of UFC 203 on September 10th in Cleveland, Ohio. The card will be headlined by a heavywieght title fight between newly minted champion Stipe Miocic and former Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem.
