Gotta say it brings a certain bit of satisfaction knowing that Luke is at the point that hes looking for excuses as to why he lost.

Means his run is most likely over.

Well holy shit, you are just full of rage and assumptions aren’t you?

I wonder how being smaller at LHW will affect his success? Lots of guys seem to be moving up successfully lately. RDA, Bobby Knuckles, Gastelum.

“Didn’t have a great weight cut” 

Sick of hearing that. If you ask most fighters i don’t believe they will admit they had a “good” weight cut. It’s a level playing field with cutting. 


Hey fuckhead, at least he made the weight cut. Romero couldn't even do that.

Romero took the fight on short notice. Luke had a full camp. Not a fair comparsion.

Luke is a great fighter who has an average chin at best and needs to improve his boxing/defense.

Good luck at LHW.

Gus would fuck him up. If Rockhold is moving up he should fight someone with a big name and a lower ranking than Gus like Shogun.

I'm excited at the prospect of seeing him on the receiving end of even BIGGER knockouts!

Gustafson will embarrass him. And I mean, completely humiliate him.

"Credit to Yoel. I thought I could take advantage of certain things, and kicking his leg felt like f---ing cement."

He never had the makings of a varsity athlete.

It really is crazy. Luke is a great fighter. One of the absolute top dogs. And he loses to one of the best MW's ever IMO. And now he sucks.

That being said, I think LHW is gonna be a tough go for him. But I'm interested to see his it goes.

Ya good luck at LHW. He's another Jon Jones archtype at 185 where his height is his talent.

If Bisping can knock him out I don't like his chances at 205.

I think so too..I'm shocked Luke is thinking about fighting Gusta..I mean, let's see Luke fight a guy like Cummins first..

Luke will have to really I prove his takedowns to be competitive at lhw

I wouldnt be surprised if he looks better at 205, less of a weight cut or he puts on more size, either might help with taking a shot. Lots of fighters look better when they move up, most only seem to stay in lighter classes if they think that's their fastest route to the title.

It'll be interesting to see how that chin will hold up against the bigger men at 205.

If Romero couldn’t make weight then he shouldn’t have taken the fight.

 His chin isn't the problem. His poor defense and boxing is the issue. His size, length and body kicks alone make is standup tough to beat. He should have learned basic boxing fundamentals like a real jab that he brought straight back to keep his defense sound. He pushes his jab and lets it drop which leaves him open to counters. Bisping flatout told him this, but Luke is too arrogant to see his own faults and weaknesses. DC is much shorter, but outboxes many opponents because he learned proper boxing. Luke refuses to do so, and will continue to get whacked out making the highlight reels for opponents. Branch damn near did it too. His only chance is to turn pure grappler and try to avoid striking anymore. The blueprint is now out for how to beat him striking.

Gets brutally KO'd twice and moves up to a weight class where dudes punch even harder... ok Luke great thinking there
