John Lineker moved his winning streak to six tonight at UFC Fight Night 96, by outscoring fellow bantamweight contender John Dodson.
Lineker came forward throughout much of the bout, and as expected, chucked heavy punches. Dodson, meanwhile, consistently moved laterally and tried to land counter strikes.
