It's kinda funny. He comes in and basically chooses the worst raked MW there is. Don't get me wrong, Philippou is a very good boxer, but his TDD is awful and I doubt he has any ground game. Luke basically chooses the easiest fight to get to Silva.

He mentions fighting Bisping and he says he wants to knock him out, but it really is only because of the fact that there is no way he gets matched up with him. If Bisping wins, he fights Silva, if he loses, well they won't match Luke up with a guy coming off of a loss. It's like a bully pretending to be tough while hiding behind his gang.

Then he mentions Belfort, but there is nothing about fighting him, if he wins. This is the most logical fight there is and it could be for the NR. 1 contender status. But noo, let's go with Philippou..

And then the Weidman thing? Of course he doesn't want to take that risk of waiting for Weidman to fight Silva. Silva fight = big money for Luke, Weidman = not so much.

Guy is just a clown, pure and simple.
