    I like his work. Yeah he's smug and pretentiousness, but he's smart too, and that's rare for a sports journalist let alone an MMA journalist.

    I had no idea Luke was that big. Definitely the MMA HW GOAT reporter, edging out Sherwood of course.

    His show is too long imo. He needs to condense it to a size that people actually have time for.

    I've said it before but I like Luke a lot. I don't always agree with everything he says, and sometimes yes, he can be arrogant (It used to bother me a lot more) but we need more MMA journalists like him. Also, I like the fact that he trains BJJ and gives insight into the techniques. He has a lot better understanding of the ground game in MMA than most and that's always good.

    Thomas is a commanding presence, which intimidates a lot of people.

    He shows no fear. He shows no doubt. He has an answer to every question.

    He is extremely passionate about MMA and fully consumed with combat sports. A true professional and probably the most charismatic man in MMA media.

    The best MMA journalist in my opinion. Haven't missed a weekly chat in months.

    plus, he actually trains to be able to explain why Rockhold's sub was unusually good when he, Ariel & Mindenhal were discussing sub awards.

    I respect his opinions and love for the sport. He's straight forward and knows his shit.

    But yeah, he's a bit pretentious and full of himself which turns me off from watching his podcast because I feel it affects his opinions.

    I enjoy his work

    I'll typically listen to his shows while getting deep into reports at work...I like his analysis and his more serious style, as there are far too many mma journalists who take the campy, funny route. But he's actually funny too in a dry sarcastic way.

    I hope he gets more shine.
