After attending UFC Fight Night 48 in Macau, China to watch Michael Bisping dismantle Cung Le in a 5-round middleweight bout, Luke Rockhold decided to take a trip over to Phuket. Unfortunately, his trip in Thailand ended up getting some backlash on social media, but it was all in good fun, according to Rockhold.
Most of you would think the formermiddleweight champion had plans to take advantage of some good ol’ Muay Tai training in Thailand, but instead, Rockhold decided take some pictures and visit some dangerous cats. By that I mean tigers. I guess these ones were harmless because Rockhold grabbed one of them by the balls, which angered a few people online.
Personally, I think it’s pretty funny, but Rockhold apologizes to those who think it was disrespectful.
I’m sorry. Was so minor just joking around. I was way too scared and would never do anything harmful to any animal.
I’m sure Bisping will have a few words to say about this one over Twitter.
