Just in case you didn’t know, Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold will defend his throne against Tim Kennedy (Pictured) in a few weeks. If that’s breaking news to you, former UFC legend Frank Shamrock knows just who to blame. According to Shamrock, the 185-pounders are far too cordial with each other and need to spice things up by having one of them emerge as the villain. Shamrock knows better than anyone that the “Good Guy vs. Bad Guy” route is one of the best angles to take for selling a fight. Unfortunately for Shamrock, his lessons fell on deaf ears. Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon hosts the July 14th extravaganza. Showtime broadcasts the main card at 10PM ET/PT.
