Francis Carmont-Luke Rockhold? Carmont Is All For It

Francis Carmont-Luke Rockhold? Carmont Is All For It

A winner of his last 11 fights, including six inside the Octagon, Francis Carmont is ready to step to the challenge.

Carmont let it be known via Twitter he is willing to welcome a returning Luke Rockhold back to action, if the former Strikeforce champion wants to face him.

Rockhold suffered a knee injury in training and was forced out of a planned fight with Tim Boetsch. He dropped his UFC debut to Vitor Belfort earlier this year.

Carmont, meanwhile, has pushed his overall record to 22-7 after wins vs. Costa Philippou, Lorenz Larkin and Tom Lawlor.

Rockhold went ahead and answered Carmont, but left the actual answer of the challenge left unanswered.
