As for the fight – things were competitive early. Both Luke Rockhold and Mike Perry landed heavy shots. However, going into the second, it was the body work from Perry that made the difference. Shortly into the second, Rockhold told Dan Mirgliotta he had enough – pointing to his mouth. It’s unknown at this time if Rockhold suffered an injury that forced him to retire.
