Luke Rockhold minced no words when giving a prediction for his UFC 199 main event rematch with Michael Bisping. The UFC middleweight champ is notoriously confident, but for this one, he said there’s no doubt.

“I know that I’m going to knock Michael Bisping out in devastating fashion,” Rockhold told MMAjunkie. “I don’t think it, I know it. I know it’s going to happen. I’m going to stay composed, I’m going to find my timing, I’m going to pick my shots and then I’m going to lay the smack down.”

Rockhold is so cocky, it's hard for me to even read his words nevermind listen to one of his interviews. Yeah, he probably will KO Bisping, he's done it before so he almost has to do it again.

Even if Bisping gets ko'd I can't see him retiring just yet. He may not be a threat to Rockhold but he does mix in well with the top middleweights

I hope he one arm guillotines him with the other arm this time! I'm going to have to go back and watch the fight to see which arm he used to choke him out the first time then pay attention to see if he repeats but with the other arm. If I see Luke this upcoming week I'm going to suggest it to him, but he probably won't listen to my ass anyways. Sounds like he wants the KO instead.

If memory serves, it was his left arm whIle he posted up with his right arm. Saved you some time. I too hope Rockhold finishes him again. I don't much care if it's a KO or a sub. If some crazy magical how Bisping beats Rockhold, I think we can rest assured that Jacare would likely strangle Bisping. Personally I hope Rockhold wins and sets up the rematch between him and Jacare, a fight that was extremely close the first time around, ending in a split decision win for Rockhold that could've gone either way.

I knew Rockhold was uber talented but after the Weidman fight, the hype was definitely justified. Beating Weidman is one thing but the way he did it, oof that's some scary shit to the other middleweights. This dude is just on another level right now. Hail the king!

Rockhold is going to get the KO this time I think. He basically had it the 1st time they fought after he caught him with the head kick. Rockhold just jumped on the neck instead of finishing with punches. He's probably looking for the clean KO this time. Most likely with a head kick.
