I don't know if Luke is sour about that fight and what went on but in my opinion he has every right to be fucked off about how everything went down.

Firstly he wasn't even surposed to fight Yoel. Yoel was a short notice replacement to the end of Lukes training camp, So all the training Luke did was for a completely different style.

And to ad salt to the wound Yoel missed fucking weight which is the biggest dick move there is.

I get that Luke isn't always the most likable guy in the media or anything but I personally love his fighting style and I have to say If I was in his shoes i would be pretty fucked off about how that all went down.

He actually doesn't have the right. He accepted the 4 week replacment, he accepted 30% of Yoel's pay, and he accepted the fight with Yoel after he missed weight. You don't have the right to accept the fight, take nearly half his purse, then STILL complain when you lose.

And no, Yoel didn't replace Whittaker at "the end of Rockhold's training camp". The change was 4 weeks out, which is more than enough time to prepare for the change in styles. Most fighters don't even do opponent specific training till the last half of the camp.

It didn't realize he was so fucked off about it. As far as training for somebody different before Yoel became a replacement 5 weeks before the fight, this shit is silly.........do you think Roel was in the gym training for Luke before he got the call? Luke still had the longer camp, and had equal amount of time to train for Yoel and Yoel did for him. Luke needs to stop being so fucked off and get on with it, this is the fight business.

put yourself in his shoes.

You wouldn't be pissed that the fight didnt just happen the way it was surposed to and tons of stuff outside of your controll happened that led to yuo getting knocked out and losing your shot at the title?

You seriously telling me you fucks would have the perspective to just be all happy with how it all turned out?

I wouldn't, I'd be fucked off

Of course I would be pissed I got ko'd. But I'd only have myself to be pissed at. I wouldn't have "every right" to be pissed at anybody but myself.

Playing devils advocate here...

had luke not agreed to fight the card would of been fucked and fans wouldn’t be happy. 

Kind of a shitty spot to be in as a fighter.

Luke got fucked over, no doubt, but it is what it is he chose to take the fight even after Romero fucked up his weight cut.

Luke is probably glad someone stepped up and he got money to cover his bills and trianing camp.

Aside from that, I am not sure how mad he can be. He lost the same way he lost to Bisping. You can't blame a hole like that on an extra 3 pounds or late notice.

while I can't stand luke, I would have absolutely supported him not agreeing to the fight or at least demanding 100% of yoel's purse for this fight and his next... whatever demands he wanted, he should have put the pressure of the card falling apart on yoel... still glad he lost though...

Luke thought he was the best. He didnt care who he was fighting,his ego convinced him he could beat anyone.

Fighting under these circumstances gave Luke the upper hand, if he couldn’t get it done then he would never be able to do it if Yoel has a full camp

Does Luke get 30% of Yoel's POTN Bonus?

Yoel wasn't eligible for a POTN bonus, because he missed weight.
