UFC fighter Anthony Smith HATES Luke Rockhold's guts. Like REALLY hates him.
And, moments ago, Smith issued a threat to Rockhold, despite the fact they don't even have a fight on the books.
"That guy’s a f*cking piece of sh*t," Smith said at the UFC press conference in Atlanta moments ago.
"F*ck Luke Rockhold."
So, why the hostility?
It stems back to a radio interview Rockhold did earlier this year when he called Smith a "sloppy bum" who wasn't worthy of a fight with Jon Jones at UFC 235.
Smith was clearly offended -- and used his opportunity Friday to lash back at Rockhold.
"The first opportunity I get I’m gonna drill a hole through Luke Rockhold’s f*cking face. I promise you guys that.”
“The first opportunity I get after this fight, doesn’t matter what happens. I’ll fight Luke Rockhold on one f*cking leg. I’m gonna beat that dude's f*cking ass.”
Smith is scheduled to fight Alexander Gustafsson at UFC Fight Night in June -- and if Smith wins that fight, ya gotta think Dana White would want to book Rockhold next.
