John Lineker returns at UFC Fight Night 119 on October 28

John Lineker, one of the UFC bantamweight division’s most exciting contenders, is now scheduled for a return to the cage

According to a report from…

This will be Lineker’s first fight in nearly a year, as his last steps into the cage occurred in December of 2016, when he came up short in a bantamweight scrap with former champion TJ Dillashaw. This loss to Dillashaw was preceded by four-straight wins in the bantamweight division, as he submitted Francisco Rivera, defeated Rob Font by decision, knocked out Michael MacDonald, and defeated John Dodson by decision. The Brazilian bantamweight knockout artist is 29-8 overall.
