Quinton "Rampage" Jackson looked mostly good defeating Fábio Maldonado, but his comments about Bellator after the fact aren't going to do him any favors. Remember: THE INJUNCTION IS BACK ON IN FULL EFFECT.
MMA analyst Luke Thomas takes a closer look at Rampage Jackson's return to the octagon by recapping Jackson's impressive victory against Fabio Maldonado.

Different times, different fights, different weight classes. But Rockhold essentially beat Machida worse than Jon Jones ever did.
Does Luke Rockhold's convincing win over Lyoto Machida make him the No. 1 contender in the middleweight division? Luke Thomas gives us his take.

+Luke Thomas I love watching the mma beat but as soon as jeff comes on I feel like reaching for the nearest pillow and putting it over my head, its like you guys just nod your head at him because you sort of feel for him, it should be ariel, yourself (best knowledge of mma in the business) chuck & marc.

Ronda Rousey is not the biggest draw in MMA, but with the kind of exposure she's getting, she'll be there soon.
Ronda Rousey said that she's the biggest draw in all of the UFC. We ask Luke Thomas if he agrees with Rousey.

How did the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight happen? It's complicated, but I do my best to explain. If you enjoy, please share it!

+Luke Thomas extremely well done and im glad you are also still enthusiastic to watch this fight!!! this is what makes you one if not the best in the MMA(fighting) world. props!!!

if you could ever make a vid where you give your view on the difference of USADA and VADA that would be great. many tend to believe that VADA is superior and USADA can be bought. maybe one day you can give your view of what the truth is regarding this subject.

Sorry, gang, but everyone's calling out Mayweather only because they're jealous of him. It's not more complicated than that.

Well said. Ufc are on a mission to become bigger than boxing and this seems like a premeditated strike to undermine boxing in the eyes of the uneducated public. Comparing boxing and mma is like comparing football and rugby. Pretty pathetic but these Ufc have zero class

Was there a problem with the judging in the Jorge Masvidal-Al Iaquinta bout? I think so, but the bigger issue to me is why a guy as good as Masvidal is letting opponents stay in fights when he's clearly got them beat.
UFC analyst Luke Thomas breaks down Jorge Masvidal's heartbreaking split decision loss to Al Iaquinta.
