John Lineker

John Lineker missed weight for his main event fight against John Dodson scheduled to take place at UFC Fight Night 96 tomorrow night in Portland, Oregon. Lineker weighed in at 136.5 pounds - which is a pound and a half over the bantamweight limit — for his fight against John Dodson. This is the fifth time Lineker has missed weight since joining the UFC, with the previous four happening in the flyweight division when he was attempting to cut to 125 pounds.

Lineker wasn’t alone as Alex Oliveira, who will face Luis Henrique da Silva, weighed in at 161.5 pounds, which is five and a half pounds over the lightweight limit. Hacran Dias, who will face Andre Fili, weighed in at 148.5 pounds. That’s two and a half pounds too heavy.
