Alexander Gustafsson Calls Out Luke Rockhold While Waiting for His Teammate Daniel Cormier


Alexander Gustafsson can't get a fight with Daniel Cormier right now so he'll take the next best thing – his teammate and close friend Luke Rockhold. On Tuesday, Gustafsson unleashed a call out aimed at Rockhold while taking a couple of shots at the former middleweight champion after he mentioned that he was planning a move up to 205 pounds in the future. Rockhold was just knocked out by Yoel Romero this past weekend, which Gustafsson addresses in his message while suggesting that a fight between them will keep him busy until he can compete for the light heavyweight championship after Cormier is done with his next bout against Stipe Miocic. “Luke Rockhold – your teammate is holding my division hostage, and you think there are only easy fights at light heavyweight,” Gustafsson wrote. “If you think Romero hits hard, then wait till you come to the big boys. “I want Daniel Cormier and knocking you out will keep me warm in the meantime. Beware of coming up in weight because I will be standing at the front door waiting.”
