Controversy followed the defeat as video and audio evidence showed that Rohskopf didn’t want to answer the bell for round three, but cornerman Robert Drysdale did his best, despite the fighter’s wishes, to get Rohskopf to fight in the third round.
A lot of people, including Drysdale himself, have spoken out on the situation and now Rohskopf has come to the defense of his cornermen.
“I don’t have anything to say except that all the decisions up to this point right and wrong have been mine and mine only,” Rohskopf told The Body Lock. “My manager and coaches did nothing but listen to me and do everything I’ve asked.”
The bout was a late notice one for Rohskopf, who accepted the fight about a week before the event and he also entered the bout while suffering from turf toe. There is no word yet if Rohskopf, who suffered his first professional MMA defeat against Hubbard, will get another fight in the UFC.
