If John Lineker was better able to control his weight, then he would likely be the next flyweight contender according to UFC boss Dana White. That’s not the case as Lineker has missed weight for the UFC three times now.
“He’s probably one of the best guys in the sport and has been since before we owned this company,” said White. “He’s so good that if he had made weight on the three times he’s missed, he’d probably have a title shot right now.”
The UFC has spoken to Mike Dolce about helping Lineker make a healthy weight cut.
Lineker is 4-1 for the UFC with the defeat being his debut. He’s won his last three for the UFC via TKO.
At UFC Fight Night 30, Lineker stopped Phil Harris for his third win in 2013.
