This does speak well for people like me who hate on bisping though. Really devalues his already shitty title reign. Has Luke always sucked. Worst in history easily. I mean he beat a shitty fighter with a shitty chin who he got destroyed by a year earlier, and bitched out of giving him a trilogy rematch? which Luke was nice enough to give bisping on short notice? Even tho luke has always sucked. Then he refused to fight anyone in the top 25 in the MW division while saying he was to injured to fight middleweights but healthy enough to fight welterweights?
Damn. The more Luke loses cause he is a shitty fighter, the more bisping looks like shit. Especially how he got dominated in that first fight and was crying to the ref to call imaginary fouls

Javier Mendez has also said on more than one occasion how impressed he was at Luke's kicks especially considering he didnt grow up training a martial art that involved kicking.
Luke seems as talented as anyone but so supremely arrogant that he fights like nothing can go wrong.
He looked at Jan with the same disdain that he looked at Bisping.
We could assume that it was just preflight mental warfare...but in the fight its self he fought with the same lack of defense and nonchalance he did against Bisping.
It wasn't that surprising to see him get knocked considering how he started the fight.

I dont think the guy ever made adjustments to his loss against Bisping.
