Live Chat: Michael Bisping Retirement, UFC Liverpool Results, UFC Utica Preview

On today’s podcast, we’ll discuss the retirement of Michael Bisping, the UK’s first UFC champion. What did he accomplish in his career and what can we say about it? We’ll discuss. We’ll also look at the results from UFC Liverpool: Stephen Thompson vs. Darren Till. We’ll also look ahead to UFC Utica and more. This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat with Luke Thomas.


  1. For sure check the date 3 seconds before you go live. Also are these not going to be on iTunes anymore? The past 3 weeks haven't been.

  2. Luke stop brown-nosing, how can you describe Bisping's career with "never ducked contenders" when he finished his career ducking Yoel Romero for a full year during his title run?

  3. Your on fire today Luke. Screw Drake big up to Boot Camp DuckDown and let the judging reflect what you felt happen in a Fight.

  4. Agree w/ everything bout Bisping, Luke, But CANNOT agree more re the Cung Le comment you read & disagreed on during the chat. If I recall it was even one of the ONLY times Brian Stann felt compelled to trash-talk & taunt on social media — trashing ( the yes — waaay over-the-hill) Le for alleged 'roid use (which I believe 95% of fans would agree on based on the eyeball test alone). Again — agree on everything & NOT trashing Bisping's resume … just shooocked you don't recall that aspect of
    the fight.

  5. Here me out on this, are any Star Wars movies good? I enjoyed the original saga as a child (born 1990), and whilst they might survive the test of time (bearing in mind theyre old), they dont really hold a candle to plenty of other old movies (Godfather).

    The prequel saga was fun, but the movies werent actually good. Just dumb action blockbusters. Same with these new ones.

    Lets not pretend Star Wars has ever been a franchise based on great cinema.

  6. Luke – you realize we can't hear all the commotion in your house, right? To us it appears you're getting worked up over nothing.

  7. Anybody know why these live chats aren't arriving on my Podcast feed for the last 3 weeks?

  8. Luke has to be the most pettiest man who complains about people being petty on a regular basis. LMAO

  9. Yo Luke, that Shure SM7b is the best mic you will find, but it needs a good preamp to drive it. I’d recommend the standard, a cloudlifter cl-1

  10. I got a solution for the weight cutting. Pay each fighter $50K to move up a weight class. The goal being to get guys fighting at their actual weight. IF there's a catchweight situation pay the on-weight fighter an extra $50K if they're willing to fight.

  11. I have to say Big L is probably one of the best rappers of all time. His flow and style are incomparable. Plus his lyrics get u amped

  12. Luke shilling for those hack frauds at RedLetterMedia? Is he a hack fraud?

  13. "Cung Lee looked like a million dollars coming into the fight". At the end he looked like about $1.50. Bisping basically ended Lee's career with the beat down he unleashed on him.

  14. I love that Luke is an RLM fan. Now all I can wonder is whether he saw the Best of the Worst that featured a movie where a couple took a bath in urine for no reason. By bath, I mean an entire bathtub of urine.

  15. Brendan Schaub stole Luke Thomas's method breaking down Till vs Wonderboy on his podcast. That guy used to be entertaining to me but his high and mighty ego changed that for me.

  16. You would think one would get the set ready "before" the show starts not during….. Just a thought

  17. Real Madrid have the most disgusting fans alive. They boo their own players if they don't win. No loyalty. Support a real club like my team Manchester United or our enemy Liverpool.

  18. I feel like all the technical difficulties and set backs in his career are karma for taking a little too much time reveling in his small petty victories.

  19. how can you have a diff microphone problem every month? then spend half hour explaining it…reminds me of my 7th grade social studies teacher,,,annoying

  20. I'm sorry its embarrassing watching a non native spaniard glory hunting for Madrid. He couldn't possibly understand the passion and pride that comes from supporting a team from your home town and how integrated they are to long generations of families, well maybe he can from his local US sports teams. It just lacks any authenticity and is a little bit cringy. Maybe I'm just bitter cus I'm stuck with Leeds haha Great video anyway.

  21. His 'revenge' on the trolls would have been far more effective if his microphone wasn't completely screwed up. Better luck next time!

  22. Yes to the idea of champions from different organizations fighting for a world title. But good luck with that, at least as far as the UFC is concerned.

  23. Hey Luke, always been a huge fan of your work. Noticed you have a copy of Guns, Germs and Steel on your bookshelf. One of my all time favorites. Wondering if you could provide us with a video bookshelf tour at some point or maybe a couple of links to your favorite books of all time. I love reading books based on recommendations from people I respect. If not, that's cool too. Keep up the good work Luke!

  24. Its an all new low, Soccer and Rap discussions. How the mighty have fallen ! Can we just stick to MMA and not insecurities, the show is great when you just comment on your strengths !

  25. Luke, The Last Jedi was only supported by paid off writers. The movie was full of plot holes, dumb political statements and in essence destroyed the Star Wars Universe. Sales have been going down, down down compared to what was expected. It is hard to think that they could mess up a Franchise like Star Wars but somehow it happened. That isnt just dorks who like robots shooting lasers in space, thats the majority of folks who thought the lastest round of SW movies suck. Get out of your DC bubble. The Force doesnt need to be, "female" or male for that matter, people just like a good story without somebody shoving their politics down our throats. Sales prove that, dont be so dismissive of opposing points of view, you sound like a CNN dork.
