    Great fight. Would be shocked if Bibiano pulled this off.

    Who is this John's Lineker guy? Also, I think Bibiano is in for a bad night.

    Bout time.

    I know covid didnt help but just thinking about guys who go to One and are rarely seen, even when they fight few care. MM, eddie, Sage, Lineker etc, I guess if the money is too good to pass up you got to take it.

    Lineker will send Fernandes to the shadow realm.

    He missed weight on 5 occasions and kept pulling out of fights.

    He is a good fighter, but UFC was absolutely correct in letting him go

    Lineker has always been terrifying.

    I was hoping to see Lineker finish his contract and re-sign with the UFC or Bellator but he will probably be locked in a championship clause.

    Bibiano & Fedor were the two fighters I always wanted in UFC. Never count out a legend.

    No chance if they're paying him as well as they pay Adriano Moraes.

    I am was genuinely surprised that Moraes was getting paid that much, especially when it seems they put zero effort into marketing him. He did get paid only 50K/50K on his last contract which he fought DJ on, but the new one with 250K flat as champ, 100K/100K as non champ, and 10K per month for two years is really nice.

    As a flyweight with no other big organizations besides the UFC, I would just stay put.

    Hope Bibiano pulls it off amazing he's still at the top of a lower weightclass at his age. You never really see that in mma.

    Is this the equivalent of paying $125k for Myles Jury? At least Moraes is good and entertaning.
