Luke Rockhold, Our SoCal Wedding Guide and Lauryn Evart’s Home Goals

These photos of our cover star and UFC fighter Luke Rockhold jump off the page. It almost feels as if you are about to absorb the punch he’s throwing underwater or physically get sand in your eye from his forceful high kick. Luke Rockhold Locale

All props to the talented photographer Corey Wilson for bringing this action to life. Wilson gets to travel across the globe capturing moments in time, like these, that simply make us jealous that we weren’t able to be there when the photo was snapped. Rockhold and Wilson packed their bags for Bali, Indonesia in mid-January to explore and, well, take cool pics while doing cool stuff—cliff jumping, waterfall chasing and underwater wrestling type stuff to be exact. Luke Rockhold Locale

Rockhold is a prize fighter who has some unfinished business to take care of in the cage, but first, he made it a priority to take some time to get away and travel. “Life is a about balance, definitely in the fight game,” Rockhold explains. “I’m an outdoorsman. I can only take so much time in the gym beating each other up.” He continues to say that this brutal game of MMA fighting wears and tears on your body, but also your mind. Time away allows Rockhold to analyze his strengths and his weaknesses, grow and gain clearer vision, he says.

I think Bali is the perfect place to press the reset button, don’t you? This trip was a break in his day-to-day grind, but now the itch to get back on the mat is there and we, here at LOCALE, are thankful to be one stop during Rockhold’s quest for glory.
