There’s trouble brewing in UFC’s marketing department once again.
Reigning middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is now the latest prominent combatant from the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion to speak up in recent months about his feelings on a pay-per-view (PPV) poster.
Especially one that they’re a major part of.
Rockhold took to Twitter early yesterday (Fri., March 25, 2016) to voice his frustration with the current UFC 199 poster (see it here).
What you guys think of the #ufc199 poster? The hand in the middle baffles me, needs to go.

It was just two months ago that featherweight king Conor McGregor lambasted UFC’s marketing department for a then UFC 197 poster blunder.
Time will tell if his grievance will be heard like McGregor’s was.
Back to the matter at hand. Rockhold will be facing off with ex-champion Chris Weidman in the main event of UFC 199 on June 4, 2016 in a rematch of their UFC 194 encounter, which saw “All-American” get stopped in round four.
UFC 199 also features a second title fight in the co-main event slot as bantamweight titleholder Dominick Cruz looks to come out on top in a trilogy tilt with longtime nemesis Urijah Faber.
