Strikeforce middleweight champ Luke Rockhold hopes Tim Kennedy will engage him in a high-paced fight when they meet next month at "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy."

But he's also concerned that Kennedy is going to slow down the fight with a game plan from coach Greg Jackson.

"I'm not the biggest fan of Greg Jackson game plans," Rockhold said during a conference call in support of the July event. "It's mixed martial arts. I quit wrestling for a reason, so I want to fight, and I'm looking for a fight."

I would not call it a form of cheating, but I will not disagree with statement accusing Jackson trained fighter's gameplans resulting in boring fights at times. They are well thought out gameplans designed only to get the win, which is most important, but they often appear to only be designed to win a decision and not designed at all to finish a fight. They may not be exciting, but I guess winning is winning.
