Who knows, Robert lost to Court Mcgee and got Ko'd by Wonderboy in the first. Then moved up to 185, and eventually became the champion. But it isn't like Robert never had bad performances either. Robert did not look so good against Clint Hester, and struggled with Natal too. Which is why I find it funny how fans right people off, especially a fighter at one point thought was going to be the next dominant king.

I think Luke's only challenge at LHW is Gustafsson, for the most part the other fighters aren't very good, and are not on his level. Keep in mind DC plans on leaving.

It's possible he does better at LHW. I'm only saying those guys hit harder and his defense needs to improve from what he's shown recently. As for Bobby, he was also pretty young and still improving 4 years ago. He's still only 27, hopefully he can stay healthy and active for a while. It is always interesting to see guys do better at higher weight classes though.

His chin, and ability to recover from a shot will be better, because he won't be depleting his body. I feel like he has made some strides in his striking. He was using the jab, and doing well. The calf kick was hurting Romero; Luke has a tendency that can be exploited. Relying on the same technique will lead him to get caught because people will just feint or pump a double jab, and then land a big shot, knowing Luke will just look to check hook.

Ima state this for the record and you can bring it back up if Im proved wrong but!
Anyone thinking Luke fucking Rockold is gonna move up to lhw and do better are out of your fucking minds!
Dude cant even take a shot from the middleweights and has God awful defense when pressured other than that fading right hand thing he does.He also lacks real punching power to be a real threat there.So whats he got at lhw thats any different than at mw?Bigger stronger strikers that basically nullify the couple things he does well, gnp and kicks sure thats gonna work out real good for him :lol:
Fluke is getting wrecked at LHW if he goes up folks its not an opinion its a fact.
