    I think Lineker by KO. Rivera looked good against Faber and it'll be interesting to see Lineker at a different weight. I think Lineker's power will be too much and he'll land something early. I hope he can make the same run towards the title that he did at 125, but without the roadblocks this time.

    This. Rivera was hurt badly by Mizugaki and has been knocked out before while Lineker have shown a solid chin. I think Lineker will have even more power at 135 and his speed will cause Rivera some problems.

    Lineker got rocked badly by Jose Maria Tome in their fight.

    Outside of maybe Bagutinov, nobody was even close to matching linekers power at 125. Franscisco won't be afraid to stand with him and I think that'll be the difference.

    Linekers very hittable and Cisco has way better footwork, either way interesting fight.

    Rivera was chewing up Faber until the shameless eyepoke, he's been looking pretty diesel lately, I'm going with Rivera.

    Rivera wins by tko or decision. Will be more technical than Lineker and pick him apart.

    You really think Lineker hits that much harder and is that better at taking shots? Cisco has been finished by strikes once. So has Lawler and Nick Diaz, does anyone think lawler and nick have chins that are anything other than really fucking good? Lineker is 25 years old and has had 32 fights already. His chin will break just like anyone's and at 5'2 135 now we will see it sooner rather than later. He has more wear and tear at his age than Rivera or at least as much IMO. This is a pickem fight with variables that favor Rivera more than Lineker. We don't know how fighting at BW will affect Linker positive or negatively really. When was the last time Lineker fought a real power puncher than actually moved well to?

    Hoping for a draw. 2 10-9 rounds by Cisco, and 1 10-8 by Lineker by almost finishing Rivera :D
