UFC on Fx 8 Belfort vs Rockhold Live Odds

UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs Rockhold was a mixed martial arts event held on May 18, 2013 at the Arena Jaraguá in Jaraguá do Sul, Brazil. The event was broadcast live on FUEL TV and FX.

The event was headlined by a middleweight bout between perennial multi-divisional contender Vitor Belfort and the final Strikeforce Middleweight Champion and promotional newcomer Luke Rockhold.

Combatants Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold refused to touch gloves prior to their match, and then as the fight transpired, Rockhold chose to taunt Belfort, inviting him in for exchanges.

For Luke Rockhold that's all it took to transform him from a UFC fighter on the rise to just another Middleweight at the back of the pack. The former Strikeforce champ made his UFC debut amidst big expectations.

Vitor Belfort vs Luke Rockhold:

Round 1: Leon Roberts is the referee for tonight’s middleweight main event, with judges Guilherme Bravo, Douglas Crosby and Howard Hughes scoring at cageside. Rockhold inches forward on the UFC vet, both men in the southpaw stance. The Strikeforce import slips and falls on a high kick attempt, but he’s back on his feet before Belfort can capitalize on the mistake. Belfort whips around with a spinning kick that comes up short.

A single-leg shot from Belfort is sprawled on, and Belfort gives chase with punches before pressing Rockhold against the fence. Belfort rushes in with punches and gets the matador treatment from the AKA product. Midway through the opening round, Belfort wheels around with another spinning kick, and this time his foot catches Rockhold flush on the side of the head.

Rockhold hits the ground in a daze and Belfort turns out his lights with a barrage of heavy punches from guard, forcing ref Roberts into action. Vitor Belfort wins via knockout at 2:32 of the first round.
