The Walls In MMA: Diaz vs. Woodley, CM Punk & More | Luke Thomas

This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
Disclaimer DMCA

The 'walls' that have defined the MMA product are dissolving. The helpful barriers that have clarified weight class, organization and established norms are going away. Whether or not Nate Diaz fights Tyron Woodley, the interest in the fight from the promotion and fan base is concerning. CM Punk (Phil Brooks) getting a second opportunity in the Octagon is a pivot even from the norms of the Fertitta-backed UFC. Cyborg fighting a steady stream of bantamweights is another wall coming down. In this video, I try to argue that while the dissolving of walls sometimes produces fun and surprise, mostly we end up reminding ourselves why we have walls in the first place. The Luke Thomas Show airs weekdays, 4 to 6pm ET, on SiriusXM RUSH, channel 93. *SiriusXM Free Trial: http://www.siriusxm.com/sxm-tryfree *Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/lukethomasnews *Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/lthomasnews *Instagram: http://www.instagram/lukethomasnews *Email: lukethomasnews at gmail dot com *SoundClou
