Being called the Strikeforce middleweight champion is something Luke Rockhold admits is going to take a little while to get used to hearing.

But with the gold now around his waist after a unanimous decision victory over former champ Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza, it’s something Rockhold can definitely adjust to.

The American Kickboxing Academy fighter talks to MMAWeekly.com about the win, what it feels like to be champion, and his prediction about he and his teammates going 4-0 at Strikeforce on Saturday night.

He also learns that former title contender Tim Kennedy has already asked for the the next title shot, and he gladly accepts.

Check out this exclusive one on one video with new Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold:
