    when lineker beats urushitani what will you do? move lineker up or urushitani down?

    • admin

      Lineker is a stud, but his submission/takedown defense is still questionable. Urushitani probably doesn’t have the wrestling to take Lineker down. I am expecting Lineker to score a big knockout, which would be a solid win for him in the thin flyweight division.

  • Must be nice to have one win and be in the top ten in the ufc// the ufc needs tog et more fighters in this division// they should have like a flyweight TUF// with like japan vs usa or something// they need at least 20 more guys to make it a egit divison// at the divison still wont be taken seriously unless this divison gets stacked

    • admin

      Agreed, there are way too many high-level flyweights currently toiling away on the independent circuit. The UFC has curiously decided to continue casting their upcoming Ultimate Fighter seasons with lightweights and welterweights. The UFC could strike gold if they put together a flyweight season as they are much more likely to have their TUF winner go on to title contention. Look at John Dodson, he is already a fight or two away. Meanwhile, guys like Court McGee, Mac Danzig, Efrain Escudero, Jonathan Brookins, Ross Pearson, etc. are struggling to even keep their roster spot.

      Just look at last season’s TUF. Mike Chiesa had an amazing story, but there is no way he is ever going to reach contender status. The UFC basically just pour a ton of money into marketing and the entire TUF process to find a mid-level prospect. I hope Chiesa goes on to big things, but the reality is his striking will never allow him to do so.

  • Wagner

    Lineker 8???? LINEKER 3!!!

    • D.C. Ross

      He hasn’t made weight in 3 of his last 4 fights. Also, his submission loss to Louis Gaudinot is pulling down his ranking. Lineker has looked great in his last 3 fights, but it’s not like he’s been facing stellar competition (Harris, Maria, Gashimov).

  • D.C. Ross

    Updated. Seery did look real good in that fight. Hopefully, he avenges his prior loss to Harris later this year.

  • D.C. Ross

    He was cut, and then re-signed again.
