So I've been a little preoccupied over the weekend and I'm super-late with my posts and threads - forgive me. Out of all of the fights at the weekend the two fights that I wasn't sure about were Cruz/Garbrandt and Dillashaw/Lineker. Part of me thought that John might have a chance at finding TJ's chin, just like Dodson did. The fight in a sentence, was one of the worst performances I've ever seen from a "high-level fighter". John did nothing. As a Brazilian fighter, how dare you not know any Jiu Jitsu! This dude literally lay in half guard and just ate elbows, and even went SEG UFC days by throwing his own head at the elbows like he was some crazed madman who was trying to prove how big his balls were. Standing up he was just mindlessly swinging hooks, with no set-up, no cutting off the angles, no nothing. At least when you see hard hitters like Rumble fight, they measure and throw when needed. Then, he eventually goes for broke in the third round, and has some success. Only problem is, you're now throwing body shots in the third round which are really not that likely to get you the finish. Where were these in Round 1 and 2? Why couldn't you throw them then, to mix it up and get Dillashaw thinking of other shots? Also, TJ's takedowns looked pretty fast, but the way Lineker was on the mat in a millisecond was just disappointing. It looked like Randy Couture taking James Toney down with the low ankle shot. Is Lineker all hype because of his brawler style? The fact that some have been stupid enough to stand with him like McDonald and Rivera? Can he really stay at the top of that division or has the blueprint been set for future opponents? I was disgusted with the performance personally, because he was so bad TJ could just coast, didn't once see TJ bring out any of the tricks and flicks because it was completely unnecessary.
