If Anderson Silva Wants It, Luke Rockhold Is Down For A Fight

Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold has no problems stepping up to the big leagues and taking on UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

Silva’s management team recently said that Rockhold would make for the best contender for “The Spider,” and it appears that Rockhold is fine with that.

Rockhold recently defeated Tim Kennedy, improving to 2-0 since claiming the Strikeforce title. Silva, meanwhile, vanquished Chael Sonnen in his biggest challenge to date.
