John Lineker will have his first bantamweight fight after being kicked out the flyweight division. UFC 191 will also feature Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson.

Good to see Lineker moving up to 135 lbs. It was getting really old watching him miss weight time and time again.

Lineker sure pissed someone off with all those missed weight cuts at Fly. They showed him no mercy for his BW debut by giving him Rivera. This could be a real fun one but I think Rivera puts him away before we get the chance to see how fun it could have been.

WOOWEE! FOTN written all over it as of now. I think it's good in the long run Lineker moved up but I think he can make more waves at 125 than 135. He just needs to get this diet and regiment right. With that being said, I think he takes this and becomes a real threat at 135 and looks for a top 5 opponent next (assuming he wins)

Love both of these guys. Love the way Lineker rips with the body shots. Not sure how well he'll fare at 135 though. If he could have made weight at 125, he'd be perennial top 5.

Yeah but Mighty Mouse said he wouldn't care how fat Lineker came into their fight and I really want to see that fight. I know it is silly to give a title shot to a dude that doesn't make weight but for once a Dj fight could get some hype.
