It's crazy that Lineker may be the first person not to receive a title shot in two separate weight classes because of weight issues. In each case, he probably would have deserved them.

With the depth at bantamweight, can you give someone like Lineker a fight with Garbrandt? Because the winner is pretty much the number 1 contender. Same thing if he has to fight Dillashaw.

I hope so. Which gym is he with? Does he have a good nutritionist? His frame doesn't look like it should be missing weight at 135 compared to other top bantamweights. At least now he's only missing by half of a pound.

He is supposedly with ATT and OCS BJJ (a gym in his hometown of Paranagua). However, I only see social media stuff with him at the latter instead of both. It's crazy that he joined American Top Team a little over three years ago now. That seems like it only happened maybe a year and a half ago at the most.

Oliveira is a good guy

He did miss weight by almost 6 pounds and clearly had a sizeable weight advantage he carried into the cage.  He probably should have apologized profusely because Brooks not accepting the bout would have cost Oliveira getting paid period.

Still doesn't give Will a pass for talking shit and allegedly talking about his mother. Like Woodley said on the post show we expect guys to talk a lot of shit before the fight but expect them to be nice to each other after the fight. Sometimes it will not work out that way. Brooks is known for trash talk. He has no right to talk because he has looked average so far in the Ufc.
