    Fun fight. Someone's not keeping their consciousness in that one.

    Someone by first round KO. Probably Almeida. It would be pure action and chaos until someone goes out, that's for sure.

    And Lineker vs Cody for the title shot. Or Lineker vs TJ.

    and a great test for Almeida. Wineland has grappling skills to contend with as well as ko power.

    Good call TS.

    I like it. Good scrap stylistically, a chance for Almeida to get back on the horse, and if Eddie wins, a chance to begin to make one more run at the top.

    It would be fun while it lasted. But I think Wineland pieces Almeida up.

    Fuck yeah, BW is the shit.

    Lol, all good man. I just thought it made sense as they're both highly touted prospects looking to rebound from recent loses.

    I think either one of them would be fine losing to the other. Especially at this point in their careers.

    Why later? Both showed flaws they have to correct before they fight the big dogs. I like prospect vs prospect for that reason.

    Much more appropriate fights. Wineland/Rivera would be bonkers.

    I don't think it would be a fun fight. Sterling would probably just beat him like he did Eduardo.

    Maybe so, maybe he gets caught.
