Rockhold wants Leo DiCaprio to play him in a movie about his life

Fighter Lifestyle

UFC middleweight contender Luke Rockhold is currently on a collision course with former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida, as the two are set to fight at UFC on Fox 15 on April 18th.

But following a recent appearance on US reality show Millionaire Matchmaker, Luke's personal life (and more specifically, his love life) has been of even more interest than his fighting career. In an exclusive interview with the former Strikeforce middleweight champ in the current issue of Fighters Only, Rockhold discusses the movies and TV shows he enjoys when not training and, of course, talks a little about the ladies. Read below for a special preview.


If you could be in any TV show, past or present, what show would it be?

Baywatch for sure. Enough said. I like being surrounded by beautiful women. They would all have to be wearing bikinis at all times. Maybe even have the show at a nudist colony. Hey, you did ask me how I would want it in my world.”


Aside from MMA do you watch any other sports on TV?

“I do like watching other sports. The (San Francisco) Giants are my team. I enjoy watching the (Golden State) Warriors. I have to watch my (San Francisco) Niners too. I’m a Bay Area boy. Those are my teams. Secondarily I’m a fan of the (Oakland) A’s, too. I follow all the Bay Area teams.”


What genre of movies is your favorite?

“Recently speaking The Wolf of Wall Street was awesome. American Hustle was really good, too. Comedy wise, the one with Jennifer Aniston, she’s not always my favorite but the one with her and the family that travel down to Mexico (We’re the Millers). That was hilarious.”


If there was a movie made about your life who would you want to play you?

“You gotta go with Leonardo DiCaprio. I think he could pull it off. Juice him up, get some meat on his bones (laughs.) He is one of my favorite actors, he could do it.”


Have you ever cried while watching a movie?

“(Laughs) Man, this one movie, it just broke me down. I was like, 'Oh my God. I’m crying.' I look around and my dad is crying, my f**king brother is crying. It got all of us... But I'm not telling what it was!”
