It was in these hours when the renowned fighter assured that he will step on the most important cage in the world at least once more.
Starting with his sayings, Rockhold He said: «They (UFC) have been reaching out, talking, just monitoring my situation and letting me know that they are interested. I want to come back for something that excites me, and I want to come back when I’m ready, when my body is ready. And I think the ideal would be early or late summer. It is simply pairing myself with the right person and the right thing that will get me where I want to go. I’m not just looking to play.
“I want to go straight to the guts of this division and probably 185. I’m not ruling out 205, but I really have to push my body to get in shape and see where it wants to go. Right now I am light. I’m about 205-208 (pounds) right now, and I think it will legitimately look like I’m going back to middleweight. But we’ll see. If something comes up, you never know. If a fight falls apart, as it happens with many injuries and COVID and everything that happens, it could be ready sooner rather than later, ”he emphasized.
Come back with everything
At the same time, Luke He said: “In recent years, I have had a problem with my labrum and my rotator cuff. It’s just been deteriorating, and I relied on my right hook, and my right shoulder has taken some damage. So it’s not that sharp and it was difficult to keep my hand up and work. I don’t have the stability and strength to stand up, stay strong here. So, I decided to operate in the middle of COVID, and it has been a problem to come back from surgery.
“And I’ve had doubts about whether or not I’ll have to do another surgery, and it’s just not 100 percent. Like, the elasticity in the ligament, I can’t really trust that. I couldn’t trust that. So, it’s coming. We finally arrived. If I am going to return, I will not return engaged. I’ve done too much to get in there and fight committed. If I’m healthy, if I know I’m healthy and have a clear mind when I go out, I can beat anyone. So, that is what I am waiting for, and that is what I am doing right now », closed the brand new Luke rockhold.
