Luke Rockhold can’t believe his ears.
The former Strikeforce middleweight champion has started to hear talk that the “fix” was in during his recent bout with Vitor Belfort in Brazil.
Belfort landed a perfectly-timed spinning heel kick that dropped Rockhold. The former UFC champ pounced, finishing the fight with a flurry.
Now, on his Twitter page, Rockhold is responding to rumors that he took a dive for “The Phenom.”
Hearing some talk about my fight with Belfort being a fix. No amount of money would make me even consider taking a fall. I got caught I lost

Rockhold doesn’t seem like the type of fighter that would even think for a second about doing this, and if it did happen in the UFC, the promotion would lose credibility faster than Wall Street.
