Former UFC Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold is headlining UFC Fight Night: Pittsburgh against David Branch.
According to Rockhold, the former champion was supposed to fight Yoel Romero in the main event, but Romero turned down the fight.
Although Romero stated on his Twitter that it was Rockhold himself who initially turned the fight down.
This would lead to a response from Rockhold and the Twitter battle would begin between the two middleweights.
