Luke Rockhold nearly pulled a Nick Diaz and cold-cocked Brock Lesnar during UFC 226 melee

 

What began as a vehicle to promote Daniel Cormier versus Brock Lesnar in 2019 almost degenerated into the Strikeforce: “Nashville” broadcasted brawl after “DC” got pushed by the WWE import in the aftermath of UFC 226.

Luckily, cooler heads prevailed and aside from that super tiny guy who kept bouncing off Brock’s legs, no one inside the Octagon — after stepping over the limp body of Stipe Miocic — did anything foolish.

Including longtime Cormier teammate Luke Rockhold.

“I was trying to judge Brock,” Rockhold told Submission Radio. “Brock was coming in hot and pushing ‘DC’ but ‘DC’ kept his composure and he was trying to laugh it off, so… I was trying to judge the situation because I was about to pull a Diaz brother and jump on his back and kick Brock in the head.”
