Luke Rockhold had an epic, yet gross, moment with Paulo Costa by the end of these three-round scrap at UFC 278.

Rockhold and Costa did battle in the co-main event of UFC 278 on August 20. Rockhold was hoping showing he still had some legs in the MMA game. Ultimately, he found the realization that its time and energy to summary his career but he delivered a gutsy performance that wont soon be forgotten.

The former UFC and Strikeforce Middleweight Champion struggled with the thin air and frequently stopped to catch his breath. Still, he could keep Costa on his toes completely before final horn sounded. Ultimately, it had been Costa who found the unanimous decision win.

Rockhold didnt allow fight end before developing a memorable moment, however. He gave Costa a facewash with blood from his nose.

Through the post-fight press conference, Costa admitted he found the proceed to be rather gross (h/t MMAFighting).

I didnt view it in as soon as of the fight, Costa said at the post-fight press conference for Saturdays pay-per-view event. I simply felt something on my face, but I was so concerned about blocking his arms never to get elbowed in the facial skin and punched. But I felt something.

Now, when I saw, its an extremely disgusting scene. Its an extremely weird moment.

I saw as soon as where [Yoel] Romero kisses [Rockhold] after beating him, aswell, Costa said. That has been the weirdest moment that I had seen, but this beat that moment. I dont know why Luke did that. Maybe he was so frustrated and angry because he was losing the fight. But I took an extremely long shower following the fight.

Despite being heated with Rockhold in the pre-fight buildup, Costa gave the former American Kickboxing Academy standout props for his toughness.

Following the fight, Rockhold announced his retirement.
