Mma | Luke Rockhold To UFC President Dana White: ‘Think Before You Run Your Mouth’

@danawhite “You have to earnyour way in this company”? Tell me how did GSP earn a middleweighttitle shot? Think before you run your mouth

Rockhold lost the middleweight crown in a surprising to MichaelBisping at UFC 199 last June. The American Kickboxing Academyproduct has not returned to the Octagon since, although he wasscheduled to face RonaldoSouza at UFC Fight Night 101 in November before a knee injuryforced him to withdraw from the bout.

Like many in the MMA community, Rockhold was not pleased when itwas announced that former welterweight king Georges St.Pierre would receive the next 185-pound title shot againstBisping in his first bout in nearly four years. Last week, however,White said that Yoel Romero would face Bisping next after St. Pierre revealed that he would notbe ready to fight until November. That news at the time seemed toplease Rockhold, who expressed interest in a contender’s boutagainst GegardMousasi this summer.

“It’s time to get back on the program. If they hold true to thisfight with Yoel and Bisping, you can count me in for July,”Rockhold said in a video posted to his Instagram account.”Mousasi, I’m coming.”

A date for the proposed Bising vs. Romero bout has not beenannounced. Rockhold also does not currently have a fightbooked.

Update: White responded to Rockhold via Twitter on Tuesdayafternoon:
