Former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold has been roasted by Sean Strickland after hinting he is returning to fighting.

Rockhold announced his retirement from the sport following his all-out war with Paulo Costa at UFC 278 in August. After giving Costa a unanimous decision, rockhold Joe Rogan told the Octagon that he “can’t do that shit anymore” and that he’s “fucking old.”

Well, fast forward a few months, and immediately after Israel Adesanya won his middleweight title on March 12, tweeted: “I’ll be back.”

When Strickland was asked by The Schmo about Rockhold’s potential comeback, Strickland lashed out at the man he was once supposed to fight.

“God, Luke Rockhold sucks so much,” Strickland said.

Rockhold and Strickland were scheduled to fight at UFC 268 in New York City last year, but Rockhold pulled out of the fight with an injury. Before the game, the two took aim at each other multiple times via the media, such as when Rockhold called Strickland a “fucking nobody” and Strickland fired back by saying he was “probably just going to file a misdemeanor charge to fuck smack” Rockhold.

“Luke Rockhold – the moment this man disappears from MMA [it’s] will be a better place,” Strickland continued. “The man doesn’t have a bloody chin.”

“Luke Rockhold is everything that’s fucking wrong with the world. This man looks in the mirror every day and is probably jerking off to his reflection. Luke Rockhold – just get the hell out of here. go away brother Nobody wants to hear your shit. Go on.”

The Schmo had received Strickland’s reaction to Rockhold’s resignation a few days after the American’s announcement. And unsurprisingly, Strickland didn’t congratulate Rockhold on a legendary career.

“I’m actually glad he retired, man,” Strickland said. “You’re not going to meet someone who meets Luke Rockhold and says, ‘Man, that’s a solid guy. I want to hang out with him.’ Luke Rockhold is the definition of what an uptight c*** is. And I’m glad I don’t have to hear his name or see him in the MMA community.”

Rockhold retired from mixed martial arts with a professional record of 16-6, which includes six wins by KO/TKO and eight by submission. In addition to winning the UFC middleweight strap in 2015, Rockhold was Strikeforce’s last 185-pound champion.

He boasts wins over Michael Bisping, Chris Weidman, Lyoto Machida, Tim Kennedy, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and David Branch.

Strickland will try to get back on track on December 17 when he faces Jared Cannonier in a Fight Night event at UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Both middleweights last competed at UFC 276 in July, and each man walked out of T-Mobile Arena with a loss. For Strickland, he was KO’d by Pereira in the first round, ending the American’s six-fight winning streak.

Cannonier fought Adesanya for the strap that night. He lost the fight via unanimous decision.

With both men in the top 10 in the division, their five-round contest will be an important win if they hope to work their way back up.
