"Thanks for all the love everybody couldn't do it without u guys! So I did brake my hand but its a clean brake no surgery, minor price to pay for the sweet taste of VICTORY!!! SC party for sure this weekend, do dis! 4-6 weeks b back in business!"

Those are the breaks.

Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold suffered a broken hand in his win over Keith Jardine this past weekend (Jan. 7, 2012) at the Strikeforce: "Rockhold vs. Jardine" event, which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada. at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

The American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) product recently revealed the bad news via his official Facebook page.

Rockhold successfully defended his 185- pound strap by picking apart the "The Dean of Mean" with his precise stand up game in the very first round. After connecting repeated power shots to the dome of Jardine, referee Herb Dean stepped in to put a halt to the fight to prevent further damage to Jardine, and apparently, to Rockhold's busted hand, too.

The good news is that the break will not require surgery to heal he will be ready to rock-and-roll in a little more than one month.
