    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.

    It's just a matter of time.

    Costa has the look, has the game and can already speak English.

    He could be the biggest Brazilian superstar ever, mad potential.

    The Eraser has teh biceps but Luke is a bigger man overall I'd say. The Eraser also doesn't seem to have the best cardio.

    Maybe later. I don't see Borrachinha getting on Whittaker's level in 2018, he looked a bit sloppy vs Hendricks.
    There's also the possibility that Paulo is the new Erick Silva, too much talking about the need for a new brazilian star. We must wait and see.

    Muay Thai strikers usually get torn apart by distance and movement based strikers, like Whittaker.

    Luke is a better fighter than Whittaker and way better looking than Borrachinha.

    Under kickboxing rules yes, not at MMA or muay thai tho, usually movement based strikers have a bad time in the clinch against MT guys. And Costa is bigger too, another advantage at the clinch.

    Not only that..

    He's not young enough to be the new Erick Silva

    Props to him, he probably is a better person than i am

    <{titihmm}>

    10+ USADA tests and nothing, i think it's time to stop waiting for USADA in this case, they won't save the MW division of The Eraser

    The moment a majority of MMA fans arrogantly start to predict a fighter will win 'with ease' is the moment that fighter loses.

    As a Whittaker fan and a guy going to UFC 221 in Perth - I'll blame all of you when Rockhold wins via sub.

    He's looked great so far, but I'd like to see him beat someone more relevant than ten-pounds-from-needing-a-motorized-wheelchair Hendricks.
