    Just don't know what to say. Some of u seem to have just seen it different. I'm not saying Lineker clearly won. But I had a good feeling he would win. And I wasn't sweating it. I'm actually surprised no judge had it 49-46. I'm sorry, but Dodson actually did run at times. And it cost him.

    Lol are you serious? They're different fights. Youre one of these guys who wins a bet and feels all of a sudden he needs to act almighty huh. Great another one of these types.

    Lol what? I said this fight was speed vs power and it was close. The only reason Lineker arguably won here was because his chin is ridiculous and his cardio was better than I expected.

    Cruz and TJ have better footwork and cardio and higher output. It honestly wouldn't be close. Lineker beats everyone else though as long as his chin holds up.

    I can't take anyone who uses the word "running" in MMA seriously. It's the biggest sign you have absolutely no fucking idea what you're talking about.

    Dodson ran. i guess no one should ever look to counter, just plant feet and throw bombs

    Lineker isn't a one note guy who only pushes forward with heavy hooks....even though he did that for 25 mins

    Dodson = Cruz & Dillashaw now and Lineker winning this showed hes a championship level fighter.

    Good Lord what winning a bet will do to some people

    Bro, this was argued endlessly. The Lineker backers said everything u just said. But Dodson backers said Dodson could do all that.

    Saying TJ smokes Lineker easy IMO is the same hyperbole that Dodson backers used this damn fight.

    U guys realize that both Zombie Barao and Joe Soto were able to connect on TJ. But u think Lineker will not land ONE damn strike? How can u say this stuff with a straight face

    Ok bro. I think maybe u and I should just stay clear of each other.

    I'd suggest just giving congrats to all right sides of a bet no matter if u win or lose. Not go full Barry and make excuses and act like the other side is still less intelligent even though they made the correct bet.

    It was a close fight. The major factor was Lineker's output, thats literally it. Every other argument proved valid from both sides, but just one talking point really decided the fight.

    Its not, cause they're not the same fighter at all. Smh.

    No one is saying Lineker won't land, but he will get 49-46'd by Cruz or TJ. Do you really not understand that Dodson is not like either of those guys?

    It's what being a clueless casual fan will do to you

    People expect fighters to glue their feet to the middle of the canvas and windmill overhands at each other until one of them drops


    Same morons who hated on Mayweather for schooling guys like Canelo

    It only means you don't properly understand how judges will consider that into how they rule the fight

    I understand that TJ takes punishment. And that could hurt him against Lineker. I also know that it would be lame for me to say Lineker will easily smoke TJ.

    Probably best to just let it go at this point. I don't think the argument is being understood.

    i agree that TJ and cruz are the toughest fights for cruz.. but they're the toughest fights for everyone at 135... they're 1-2-3, hard to argue, for 135, no?

    tho i disagree that he has "no chance" vs them. cruz would be tougher, cause he's just harder to hit.

    would love to see marlon moraes come to the ufc, i think he could compete with all 3 guys

    So your argument is, TJ has been hit clean in his career like basically every fighter to ever exist, and Dodson is fast even though not like TJ at all in any other regard, so that equates to Lineker being able to beat him? OK then

    WTF are you talking about now? I'm talking about people who call resetting to the center and not staying against the cage like a moron "running"

    Dodson took Lineker's back at one point. Maybe a grappler would have a chance

    could see that, what elite grappler at 135 could survive lineker / get him in that position at this point, tho?
