Bantamweight contender John Lineker has been released from his UFC contract.

After pleading for a fight, Lineker (31-9 MMA, 12-4 UFC) was given a co-main event spot against Rob Font at UFC on ESPN+ 12 this past month. He withdrew from the fight just days out, though, after allegedly suffering a facial laceration during his weight cut.

That withdrawal seemingly didn’t put the Brazilian in the UFC’s good graces, because just weeks later he is no longer with the company, MMA Junkie confirmed with a person close to the situation.

Bad cut as a result of a bad cut. He's legit one of the most "just bleed" fighters they had on the roster, so even with the setback it's not a fantastic move by the UFC.
