[12:30 AM] John Lineker v. John Dodson

Who will WIN this FIGHT?

John Lineker (BRA)

John Dodson (USA)


Current odds:

John Lineker: (+100)

John Dodson: (-125)


Dodson works best as a counter-fighter, being given time and opportunity to land his left hand down the middle or in short, choppy head-body combinations. In doing this he often tends to give up a lot of space, and can get backed into the moat of the cage with regularity.

Lineker wades forward without a whole lot of concern for his own well being. He doesn’t have particularly good pressure footwork, nor does he have much in the way of defense. What he has is great spatial instincts and unreal durability, allowing him to press forward and cut away the areas that he can’t with footwork with huge, sweeping hooks to the body and a clubbing leg kick. His takedown defense and counter grappling has improved, as has his cardio.

Dodson will be able to land often, and get away often. The only reason Lineker makes this interesting is because Dodson can’t just take him down over and over for five rounds with total comfort.
