Luke is a Man among boys in fight journalism! Keep em coming, and nice addition with “Gas Station” Brian!

Luke is a pretentious assbag

Luke seems like one of those people who thinks they're the smartest in the room. His holier than thou take on things is exhausting. He is the Karen of mma disguised as a fluffy insufferable journalist.
