The UFC is going all-out in establishing their newly-announced flyweight division.
That's because Tatame.com reports that Brazilian bruiser John "Mão de Pedra" Lineker (19-5), who captured the Jungle Fight 61 kg. title in September with a split decision over Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil hopeful Ilarde Sabino Belo dos Santos, has been signed by the world's largest fight promotion and will compete at 125-pounds.
Lineker, 20, joins the UFC in the midst of a fantastic 13-fight winning streak. Seven of those have come in in 2011 alone.

Seems like a solid fighter.

Very nice pickup for flyweights. He can make some serious noise in that division

I expect big things from this guy. Jungle Fights has actually produced some really solid guys who've made it to the UFC.
