There is a reason why to blame his coach. Rockhold's game plan was leg kicks and that is it?
I don't even think the game plan was bad. It was the same gameplan Whitaker used, which was basically keep kicking Romero so he couldn't get comfortable and attack from different angles.
Rockhold got 2 kicks checked after which he didn't throw many kicks and more importantly instead of moving and changing angles like his coaches wanted, he just stood in punching range and stood and traded, which is suicide against Romero.
Fun fight and its always fun to see the cocky Rockhold get KTFO.
