UFC on FOX 15: Watch Luke Rockhold Tap Tim Boetsch in The “Submission of The Week”

Kelsey Mowatt

Luke Rockhold

Luke Rockhold is widely regarded to be one of the best middleweights on the planet, not only because of his nasty striking game, but because he’s pretty, pretty dangerous on the mat.

If you scroll through the former Strikeforce champ’s record, you’ll find that 8 of this 13 wins to date have come via tap-out (although one was due to strikes). Sure, Rockhold likely set several of those up with punches and kicks etc, but the 30 year-old has demonstrated on several occasions that you can’t sleep on his ground game.

Leading up to Rockhold’s scrap with Lyoto Machida next weekend at UFC on FOX 15, the promotion has posted his impressive, submission win over Tim Boetsch. You can watch the memorable finish below.
