Biography
Growing up, Luke and his older brother, pro-surfer Matt Rockhold, surfed their local breaks together. Luke started training in judo when he was 6 years old but quit upon turning ten. Rockhold tried wrestling for a local community college but decided to take jiu-jitsu on full-time with his historical coach Gaetano Mortaccitua. In 2006, a friend invited Rockhold to train at the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, California. His raw talent and kicking displays immediately caught the eye of AKA head coach Javier Mendez, who touted Rockhold as a potential future champion.
Fighter Trivia
Rockhold dated Grammy Award nominated singer and actor Demi Lovato for a few months in late 2016. The duo made their first public appearance while attending UFC 205 together, at Madison Square Garden in New York. They split in January 2017.
