Luke Rockhold escalated his disagreement with Dana White on Tuesday, telling the UFC president to “Think before you run your mouth” on Twitter.

The comments are in response to White’s pushback against Rockhold’s suggestion the UFC shouldn’t be putting together matchups like Georges St-Pierre vs. Michael Bisping at the expense of top contenders.

White seemed none too pleased with Rockhold for expressing that opinion.           

“There’s a lot of guys talking about ‘deserve’—nobody deserves anything,” White said at the UFC 211 post-fight press conference, per Damon Martin of Fox Sports. “You’ve got to earn it here. You’ve got [Luke] Rockhold screaming right now, ‘I deserve this.’ You just got knocked out in the first round. You’ve got to come back and earn it.”

He continued: “The guy just got knocked out in the first round by Bisping, and he thinks he deserves this and he deserves that. You earn it. You want to come back and you want to fight for the title? Get back in here and earn it. That’s it.”
