MMAer Luke Rockhold apologizes for fondling Tiger

- August 27th, 2014

Most mixed martial artists know it’s uncouth to grapple below the belt — never mind inappropriate in almost any setting.

Apparently that got lost on Luke Rockhold, an MMAer who was recently pictured grabbing a tiger’s testicles in Thailand.

The 29-year-old took a bit heat on Twitter for “abusing” the big cat. He later apologized.

“For those of u who think it was disrespectful I’m sorry,” Rockhold wrote to Instagram. “Was so minor just joking around. I was way too scared and would never do anything harmful to any animal.”

The tiger didn’t seem to mind when Rockhold, who has a career record of 12-2, according to Sherdog, apologized for cupping the tiger’s goods.
