UFC 172’s Luke Rockhold: ‘I’m the most well-rounded guy in mixed martial arts’

MMA Oddsbreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC 172 middleweight Luke Rockhold as he prepares for his main card bout on Saturday night (April 26, 2014) against Tim Boetsch at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.

The American Kickboxing Academy fighter has a certain swagger about him and he’s not afraid to offer a retort when told upcoming opponent Tim Boetsch feels he’s the more diverse fighter:

“I used to be just head kick happy where I’d attack the head, beat the guy’s arms up and open up the rest of my game. But I have rounded my game off and it’s funny to hear Tim [Boetsch] say he’s more well-rounded than me. He’s in for a surprise because my game is as well-rounded as it gets in MMA. I think I’m the most well-rounded guy in my division if not mixed martial arts. I think my overall game is pretty much second to none.”
