We need to get you a Psycroptic shirt, Luke.

Keep up the good work you fat Badger

Larry Fisher says:

Stipe let DC fight him. There was no way that DC EARNED a title shot. He never fought anybody in the UFC. Well he was 2-0 as a HW fighting to decision victories over both Mir and Nelson. They weren't even ranked top 8. At the same time Stipe was being called the best HW ever. I don't care what anybody says those eye-pokes had a huge effect. There were three of them. Remember, as a fighter it is illegal to put an open hand out in front of you. DC has been wanting to fight fighters that have names, not good fighters. That is what Shogun was when he called him out and that is what Brock is. Brock is not an active fighter & hasn't won since 2010. DC's last fight was against Lewis (an easy win). After Lewis's win on October 6, 2018 over Volkov he was asked if he wanted to fight for the title next. His reply was no, I'm not ready. I have terrible cardio. Less than 4 weeks later he was fighting DC for the title Lewis took a beating in the Volkov fight too. Dana probably said, DC fight Lewis. This way you can sit out until September of 2019. Because if he didn't fight Lewis his last fight was in July of 2018. The Lewis fight was a give me fight. Lewis has no cardio and no wrestling. You see how DC is avoiding Stipe? Stipe vs DC is the best fight to make anyway. Cain ( a great wrestler) is fighting a person that has absolutely no ground game and no take down defense. I'd like to see Cain fight Aleksei Oleinik.

Tell Cormier, there is things he can do for arthritis: stop drinking all carbonated drinks and start taking aloes and garlic once a week.Bye bye arthritis…

Josiah Bessette says:

Love it when DC brings up the difference in his skill level and someone wanting to face him.

dlees says:

all seeing eye shill shirt

Daniel 9 says:

I could do without the Monday Morning Analyst. not sure if anyone else feels the same.

Samuel Cox says:

Luke’s mma hour outfit going downhill fast 😂

Jacobi Wilson says:

I want to bust Izzy’s tomato lips

letmeknowhowthatgoes says:

Weidman is 3-4 (4 devastating KO losses) since lightning struck twice against Anderson. Not saying he's not a good fighter but I think it's pretty clear he was definitely at least a bit… overrated.

Figjam says:

Pre-fight Luke: ANDERSON IS GOING TO DIE
Post-fight Luke: it was a little closer than what I expected

Larry Fisher says:

The day before the fight Anderson Silva wasn't even ranked in the top 15. The day after he was ranked #15. Either was Adesanya didn't beat anybody. In short, he beat an aged, washed up fighter.If you look at just his last three fights it's obvious that he no longer has it. Now to say the Israel should get a title shot is crazy. Now if Romero is staying at MW a fight between Adesanya and Romero would be a good fight. Better yet Romero vs Costa and Adesanya vs Souza. Gastelum is going to wait.

Im crushing your head says:

Are you still allowed to call someone a juice-monkey?

Matt Zywien says:

I finally have an excuse to call Luke the GOAT haha. 2 Diaz brothers in 1 studio??? Unheard of!!

Bradley Thomsen says:

Great line up.

Marcus J says:

Wasn't a fan of this dude before but the nile shirt fixed everything.

peace azure says:

Just here on this 11th day of black history month to THANK the MMA Hour for highlighting 3 Black UFC athletes !!!
🤗💕💕💕Osssss!!!!!💕💕💕🤗

Alex ab says:

1:49:20 Deserves a title shot after getting a decision over #15 and beating a crazy sloppy Brunson who dived for takedowns from miles away? @MMAFightingonSBN is it now your policy to promote Israel while demoting the legitimacy of MMA as a sport?

enes smajlo says:

who ever gave luke the confidence to make these analysis lmaoo.. he really belives he is an MMA-Expert

Bradley Thomsen says:

Few fans hope you fall, Israel. Most are behind you win or lose.

Edit: Rousey was overrated and educated fans hated the hype. Different situation with you, sir.

Ian says:

Calm down, he beat a 43 year old Silva. Throw him a Top 5 and see how he does.

tanooki mario says:

Izzy is pretty arrogant after barely surviving the fight.

slicvm says:

Israel made it "look" competitive. He could've finished Silva anytime.
