Luke Rockhold - StrikeforceAs is all the rage of late, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold took to Twitter on Tuesday to call out Michael “The Count” Bisping

@bisping u dont have opponent, I dont have opponent, u talk (expletive) about ‘practice’ i say we set the record straight once & for all @danawhite,” read the tweet, which included UFC president Dana White.

Bisping (24-5) and Rockhold (10-2) have a bit of history.

On a November 2012 episode of MMA Uncensored, Bisping brought up a sparring session he and Rockhold had in which Bisping apparently got the better of the American Kickboxing Academy middleweight.

“Let me put it like this: I’ve sparred with Luke Rockhold recently and let’s just say I’m the unofficial Strikeforce champion. Sorry Luke, but these are the facts.”

Bisping is coming off a win over Alan Belcher in his last outing, while Rockhold had a nine-fight winner streak snapped by Vitor Belfort on May 18 in his UFC debut.
