Don't count Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold as a fan of Anderson Silva's. Rockhold called Silva out after his victory over Chael Sonnen for the UFC middleweight title Saturday night at UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II.
Rockhold pointed out on Twitter that Silva wiped the vaseline off his face and on his body. The referee noticed this as well, and took a towel to Silva's body before allowing the fight to being.
"Guys it wasn't just the knee it was the grease the shorts grab, just wasn't champion like," Rockhold wrote.
Rockhold is set to defend his title next Saturday night on Showtime against Tim Kennedy in the main event of Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy.
