In an interview with TMZ Sports, Luke Rockhold said that not only is UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones beatable, but he’s coming after him to prove it. Here are highlights:

On wanting to fight Jones: “I’m moving up to get after him. That’s what I’m here for.”

On moving up to 205: “The last couple years, I’ve been compromising myself so much to get down to ’85, and my body just falls apart in training camp the last few weeks. (Being at 205) just feels right. I feel healthy. I feel comfortable, and I’m excited to take down these light heavyweights. I just don’t see a lot there.”

On watching Jones at UFC 232: “I thought he looked beatable. He’s good on the feet. He’s tactical. He adjusts, and he fights to his advantages. I like my advantages vs. his. Hold tight – I’m coming, Princess.”
