Luke Rockhold: “I’m going to close the distance when its time.” (VIDEO)

Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold is making his Octagon debut against Vitor Belfort at UFC On FX 8: Belfort Vs Rockhold in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is clearly the biggest fight of his career, as he will be fighting in the main event on free television around the world. Rockhold sat down with UFC Tonight host Jon Anik and spoke all about what he learned from fighting Ronaldo Souza, what he needs to do to beat Belfort, and what it means to him to finally get to set foot in the Octagon for the first time as a fighter.
