I think Souza runs right through him. They're on different levels in my opinion.

Damn, wish this was on the Fedor/Henderson card.

I wanted this fight over the other options. But I still see Souza winning.

Before you do, remember that Luke hasn't fought for over a year, and he hasn't exactly fought the best in Strikeforce yet.

Also he's kinda of lanky and Souza is one of the best BJJ guys out there right now. I'm thinking Rockhold loses an arm.

Rockhold's biggest win is over Jesse Taylor. Which is a great win, don't get me wrong but Souza has fought much better competition and has looked good in doing so. Souza first round armbar.

This. I'm only differing in prediction in one small way. Souza by first round whatever submission he damn well pleases. Probably either armbar or arm triangle if I had to pick one. Lanky frame vs World class BJJ= Epic fail for the former in most cases, and i believe it'll be the case here too. Then again, he does train at Team Blackhouse, so I wouldn't be too terribly surprised if he KO's Rockhold with some form of front kick courtesy of the tutelage of Seagal. Them Blackhouse members are quite the wiley bunch.

Thank God! Finally he's fighting. I think it'll be a pretty easy 1 round submission victory, maybe 2nd. Who knows maybe Luke will put up a great fight though.

Hopefully Jacare gets first dibs at Sonnen when he comes into the UFC. I think Jacare definitely is at that point where he deserves to be a fight or 2 away from Anderson. Too bad it couldn't have been Chael-Bisping coaches and Mayhem-Jacare 3 round now.

Can't believe Rockhold pulls out of 2 straight fights and because how thin the division is he gets a title fight. #Disgusting

That's a good point. He might want to keep it standing. He's always improving in that aspect. Either way I think he'll finish him.
