John Lineker is no longer competing in the flyweight division, but the Brazilian fighter is still having issues making weight.
Lineker, who is scheduled to fight John Dodson tomorrow night in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 96, came in at 136.5 pound for the bantamweight fight. As a result, Lineker has now missed weigh five times in the UFC. That’s a record.
Two other fighters also missed weight for the Portland card, however, as both Alex Oliveira and Hacran Dias came in over. In fact, Oliveira weighed in at 161.5 for his lightweight scrap with Will Brooks…
