As Luke Rockhold continues to prepare for his September 16th scrap with David Branch, the former middleweight champ has reported his camp will be in Florida, and not at the American Kickboxing Academy in California.
Recently Rockhold posted the picture and comments below:
American Kickboxing Academy will always be my home. Due to the injuries and inactivity to our key guys. My team and I have decided it best I prepare for this fight in Florida. All the usual suspects will be in my corner with the addition of @henrihooft . I’d like to thank Henri, Kami Barzini, Greg Jones and all my teammates here in Florida for helping me prepare for this fight. September 16th we ride.
This shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise, as Rockhold has worked with Henri Hooft before. The upcoming bout will be part of UFC Fight Night 116, which will go down in Pittsburgh. Rockhold will be fighting for the first time since last June, when Michael Bisping ended his reign as 185 champ, by taking him out in the opening round,
