I just got a notification telling me Lineker has been pulled for "unknown reasons." God damn it.

Love that guy and they somehow can upgrade on Lineker! Fantastic.

Lineker was removed due to a tooth infection that he needs surgery for. However, he will be able to return to training within a month.

Seems like they will have to bump up a fight from the prelims to the main card.

Sounds like Moraes and his camp were only willing to take the fight at 145 pounds.  Hope UFC compensates Rivera for this.

EDIT:

Yeah Moraes is an idiot and a joke. You don't call someone out on a week's notice and say "fight on my terms."

I'm all in for Neil Magny winning that fight :)

Praise the Lord. No Moraes/Rivera but at least neither Khabib or Cyborg missed weight. Hopefully this is just the beginning of Cyborg at 145 and it's not too draining on her body to make weight as she gets older.

Cyborg looked pretty emaciated at the weigh-in.

She looked fine to me. If you want to see her emaciated, go to the first couple times she had to get to 140.
