 @ rombu, im in no way a fan of luke. he always had a superior attitude that didnt come across good at all. but i did like it when he beat weidman, herb dean ruined chris's career that night as he's never recovered from the beatdown herb let him absorb that night. and then when the rematch with bisping was coming up he just completely dismissed michael and he paid the iron price for it. that was fantastic.

well Bisping said it best when he explained his opinion on Lovato dating ****hold. "Luke's not smart so he has to go for younger women cause they are way easier to impress and go for looks and fame and less for personality" xD
