Strikeforce Pre-Fight: Luke Rockhold on His Journey from Strikeforce Challengers to a Title Fight


Luke Rockhold made his way to a middleweight title shot by fighting on the Showtime Strikeforce Challengers shows.

While normally looked at as a developmental show for young up and comers, Rockhold was able to build himself into a top middleweight while fighter on those cards.

Rockhold also talks about his camp at American Kickboxing Academy, an dhow they helped him prepare for his big moment on Saturday night in Strikeforce.
