Luke Rockhold, former UFC and Strikeforce champion, hung up his gloves in mixed martial arts, and to seal his career he left a bloody fight against Brazilian Paulo Costa at UFC 278, leaving a memorable image rubbing his bloody face on his rival .

Rockhold and Paulo Costa have been insulting each other for years through social networks. Then, during the fight they had last Saturday, the South American dominated the veteran, but who took as a last resort to splash his rival with his own blood at eye level, something that annoys and prevents seeing.

The situation did not go unnoticed by those present at the event, so much so that the journalists who were broadcasting the fight wondered “what is Rockhold doing?”

After Costa was named the winner, an emotional Rockhold indicated that he was retiring from the sport.

“Fuck… thanks for fighting. Thanks UFC. Thanks Joe (Rogan). I can’t take this shit anymore. I gave it my all. I just couldn’t… I’m fucking old.”
