This fight is awesome two huge strong lightweights going at it.
It also makes 12 fights so looks like this stellar card is complete, I wonder why the Mutante/Sarafian fight never came to fruition.

Physically I have been impressed with Tibau (no homo), but mentally is a different story. He has the tools and the talent, but he seems unwilling to change gears mid fight if things aren't working out. Primarily, he tries to keep it standing when he is the slower striker, yet is leagues ahead of his opponent on the ground. I'm hoping he is ready to adapt this time, because he should be a top 10 lw with his ability and size.

Tibau is too much for him I'm thinking.

Ive never been a fan of Tibau, period. I think he actually gets on my nerves. With that said, i think he takes this one early.

Trinaldo cutting from Middleweight

These may be the two biggest lightweights around right now.

WAR TIBAU

I thought he got robbed in his last fight, but it was his own fault for not being more active. Hope his coaches tell him to fucking man up and start putting leather on skull.

big Gleison Tibau fan i am, but he doesnt seem to have the desire for greatness.

Talent is there, body is there, desire lacking
