Luke Rockhold and Lorenz Larkin were supposed to throw down in 2012, then they were supposed to fight early in 2013 (January to be exact). Both times, Rockhold had to withdraw from the fight.
When it became known that Strikeforce was folding and Rockhold pulled out of the January fight with Larkin, the sh...well, it hit the fan for Larkin.
Larkin took his frustrations to Twitter:
@Dana White hey Dana I hurt my right pinky toe guess I can't fight wish I started 2 years before I did so I could have skipped this pussy era
@Dana White or can you give me that Black Friday price for the sf belt?
Rockhold would respond in angry fashion.
@da_MONSOON I want nothing more than to fight u #EasyMoneybut Im not gonna fight anyone one handed. Shut ur mouth and know ur place.
Larkin had a grade school comeback for Rockhold
@LukeRockhold lol #easymoney I didnt think you were that funny and if you were hurt why did you sign the contract? Dickface
Finally, Rockhold would let his opinion be known.
@da_MONSOON I never signed it and I never started training for it because I couldn't. Nothing but bullshit out ur mouth
Their feud was somewhat childish, but Larkin's frustrations are understandable. Either way, the feud was pretty entertaining to those who stood on the wayside.
