Luke Rockhold

MMA Fighter

                      

   

What is your favorite part about being an MMA fighter?

It has to be the rush.  I'm an adrenaline junkie.  There is no rush better than winning a fight in a big arena.  It feels so good to accomplish a goal.  It is hard to explain how it feels.

 

If you had the choice, who would you like to fight?

I'm always seeking the highest challenge.  I'm very confident with my skills.  I would like to fight for the championship.

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA fighter?

Live like a champion.  Take every fight seriously.  Live, eat right, sleep right.  Stay true to yourself and the sport.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

I was influenced by Jean Claude Van Damme.  I would watch that movie in my house and then kick and punch things.  I got a lot of motivation from watching him.  I liked Michael Jordan and Tony Hawk to.  My dad was a professional basketball player in Europe and summer league for the Warriors.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

I really like art.  I was in all of these art related classes.  In high school, I won a county art contest for ceramics. 

 

If you were not an MMA fighter, what would you be?

I might have been an artist - sculpture.  I might have also been a construction person.  Actually, maybe a pro golfer.  It is really hard to be good at golf.  Golf is fun because I can actually hit something that won't hit me back.
