John Lineker has been forced out of a planned bantamweight showdown with Cody Garbrandt this Sunday due to the dengue fever.
Lineker and Garbrandt were set for part of the FOX Sports 1 main card from Pittsburgh and the Consol Energy Center. The event has been hit hard by injuries, leaving Donald Cerrone vs. Alex Oliveira for the main event.
