Linares had a previous history of crumbling.  Ask Antonio DeMarco.
That was a crazy fight, and one that most people missed since it was on the Hopkins-Dawson 1 PPV.

It's why I don't think much of Linares.  He crumbled when the going got tough.  His padded resume between the Thompson loss, and the Lomachenko loss suggests that his handlers knew he had to matched soft.
