Luke Rockhold said that the UFC’s hype train is something that makes close-minded people believe in it…and that it’s not a bad thing. Rockhold spoke ahead of his fight against Chris Weidman at UFC 194 in December and said that the company’s promotional team has helped spotlight some of the best names in the sport and get people behind them.
“Look at us now,” Rockhold said. “Myself, Yoel Romero, Tim Kennedy, ‘Jacare,’ we’re all the top guys in the division. There’s Weidman and the rest of us all from Strikeforce.”
He continued, “People are close minded, and they believe in the hype train that is the UFC. They make people believe it’s the best, and is the best now.”
