If you like to watch ridiculously explosive and hard hitting fighters throw down, then you’re going to want to tune into UFC Fight Night 96. Yes, on Saturday, the UFC announced that the October 1st card will be headlined by a scrap between bantamweight contenders John Lineker and John Dodson.
Dodson (18-7) quickly stopped Manny Gamburyan in April, which returned him to the win column, after he was decisioned by flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson in September.
Lineker (28-7) has won five in a row, however, and is coming off a first round, KO win over Michael McDonald at UFC FN 91 last month.
So, that’s a fight that has fireworks written all over it. UFC FN 96 will be hosted by Portland’s Moda Center.
