Luke Rockhold Injured Again, Won’t Return Until Fall


Former UFC Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold was rumored to be fighting Alexander Gustafsson at light heavyweight this August at UFC 227.

Rockhold, who hasn’t competed since headlining UFC Fight Night Pittsburgh earlier this year, won’t be back in action until at least October 2018.

The former middleweight champion re-aggravated a previous leg injury and had to undergo surgery once again.

MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani was sent videos of the surgical procedure and posted them on Twitter (Warning: Video’s are graphic.):



It is unknown at this time if Gustafsson will still compete at UFC 227 or if he’ll wait for Rockhold to heal up from the injury. The bout between the two was never made official, but UFC President Dana White did mention the possibility of it happening during an appearance on UFC Unfiltered.
