WATCH: Luke Rockhold Addresses Training Alongside Daniel Cormier’s Opponent at UFC 220

Luke Rockhold talks about working alongside Volkan Oezdemir ahead of UFC 220

Luke Rockhold is in the unenviable position of training alongside Volkan Oezdemir as he prepares to face off with Daniel Cormier at UFC 220 this weekend.

It’s an awkward spot because Rockhold has been friends and teammates with Cormier for years but in recent months the former middleweight champion has been spending the majority of his time in Florida working out of the same camp as Oezdemir.

In the latest episode of UFC Embedded, Rockhold answers that question about training with Oezdemir while he’s simultaneously preparing to face off with one of his best friends.

Also in the new episode, UFC champion Stipe Miocic tries to play a prank on his wife but it backfires while Cormier spends a day doing media alongside Francis Ngannou ahead of the fights this weekend.

Check out the latest episode of UFC Embedded ahead of UFC 220 in Boston.
