I think Luke boxing, specially the defense part, is too pathetic to him even have a chance in a stand up fight with someone like Whittaker, his chin is suspect too. Also if Jacare and Romero couldn't takedown the aussie champ, i don't see Luke doing that too, Whittaker TDD is probably his best attribute and the reason he's the MW champ. So the next champ, the one who will beat Whittaker, has to be a striker with a similar style, not so grappling-based. Here he is. Elite striker, giant for MW, heavy hitter and muay thai based. This is the real fight, most likely will happen at the end of the 2018, until then i don't see anyone stopping these 2. The Eraser dwarfing LHW Shogun and Ninja Whittaker being dwarfed by LHW Tyson Pedro It's just a matter of time.
