I don't know what to say.

He won't ever get a title shot.

He needs dolce badly

The thing is, he had Dolce and fired him.

Article from two weeks ago: UFC Flyweight John Lineker no longer working with Mike Dolce for UFC 169

I just don't think Lineker is in the title picture at all, even with a win. Fighters agree to make weight for a fight in the name of fairness. He hasn't lived up to his end of the bargain multiple times for fights he ended up winning. That is not a title contender.

Does he still have that hour or has the time come and gone? Disappointing he missed again, if he loses the fight I think Dana will be having a chat with him.

Funny to see Magney at 170.25, I didn't realize they carried the digits out 2 decimals.

Helwani just tweeted that the hour was up and he was able to shed the additional pound.

Thank god he made the weight.

The missing weight comments were a little premature. It's obvious he struggles a lot with Flyweight but at least he did make it. He may have to seriously consider Bantamweight regardless of the outcome here. He doesn't get that extra pound for a title shot and missing weight there would definitely be bad for his career. Look at Joe Riggs.

John Lineker needs to be forced to move up or get cut. He missed weight yet again on his first try. He missed weight and even if he made it on his 2nd try he still technically missed weight because his job is to make weight at this time on this day, not an hour after said time. That means either he doesn't care or truly cant make the weight safely. Its unfair to the other fighter, disrespectful, and unprofessional.

Patrick's backflip was the best thing since the invention of the teeth brush

Linekar almost passed out cutting weight
And needed help getting off the floor.
No way he goes three rounds
