John Lineker Misses Weight for a UFC Record 5th Time

It turns out moving up to bantamweight was not the cure he sought. John Lineker, who joined the UFC's 135-pound division after missing the 125-pound flyweight limit on four separate occasions, missed weight for a fifth time Friday in advance of his main event bout Saturday with John Dodson.
