Luke Rockhold wore the Captain Obvious crown when he said in the video below that the toughest thing about fighting Vitor Belfort is trying to make it through the first round. Of Belfort's 22 career wins, 14 have come in the first round.

But this clip from UFC's "Ultimate Insider" goes a bit deeper into Rockhold's back story, so give it a watch now or some time before he fights Belfort this Saturday at UFC on FX 8 in Brazil.
