Luke Rockhold vs. Costa Philippou full fight video preview for UFC Fight Night 35

The main event of tonight's (Wed., Jan. 15, 2014) UFC Fight Night 35: "Rockhold vs. Philippou" card on Fox Sports 1 from The Arena at Gwinnet Center in Duluth, Georgia, features middleweights Luke Rockhold and Costa Philippou battling it out in an attempt to rise up the ranks of a suddenly wide open 185-pound division.

Luke Rockhold:

"I know where I stand. I am one of the most dangerous men in this division. I have all the tools to be anybody. I'm one of the most well rounded guys. I'm taller, my wrestling's better, my jiu-jitsu's better, my kickboxing is better, and I don't lack any heart and determination, I guarantee you that. Costa's a great boxer and he's got skills everywhere but I'm going to beat him up and I'm not going to stop until the ref pulls me off. He's in big trouble in this fight. I plan on finishing him early and them raising my hand and giving me a knockout of the night bonus. I've never been a guy to shy away from a fight myself. I'm going to beat his ass. There are going to be fireworks, I guarantee it."

Costa Philippou:

"I think with Luke Rockhold he's dangerous everywhere but I'm up to the challenge. I'm strong, I'm faster, and my technique is better, and I want it more. (He doesn't have a game plan, he has a wish). I can't predict the future but I know I can knock out everybody. I'm going to go in guns blazing and it's going to be a battle."
