    Didn't see it posted on here but MMA bulletin on FB said it's on and they're a good source. This is actually the fight I wanted and I think Lineker takes it.

    In the words of Carlos Condit, it's gonna be a dogfight.

    Hm good fight but I would have preferred Garbrandt vs Lineker early 2018.

    I think Lineker vs a guy his own height will be more fun

    I almost like this fight more tbh. I think Lineker would walk Garbrandt down and blast him to sleep. Anyone who stands and bangs with Lineker will lose, including Garbrandt.

    Not bad. It's hard to replace Cruz but Lineker will make it fun

    Fuck no, I don't wanna see Cruz's back fat flopping around as he's awkwardly dancing a mile away from Lineker just to come in and try to land a punch that wouldn't break a wet piece of toilet paper.

    Let Rivera and Lineker bang.

    Great replacement. Was hoping to see Rivera smash Cruz but this will do.

    I am not sure about the outcome of the fight but it would be very interesting in seing how Garbrandt deals with him. We have seen TJ against any type of fighter and know well how he adapts / fights against swarmers, distance runners :D, heavy punchers..

    With Garbrandt there are some questions open and Lineker would imo be the perfect lithmus test. Can Cody stay light on the feet and dismantle Lineker by superior skill or does Lineker get in and put him down. I do see the fight pretty even matched with an advantage towards Cody if he can fight smart.

    To develop a fitting strategy is the responsibility of TAM headcoach. An area were they are serious lacking.

    Out of Lineker and Assuncao, Lineker is the easier fight and bigger name, so I'm not surprised that Rivera picked him.
