UFC bantamweight John Lineker is game to fight Bryan Caraway if the UFC makes it so.

In a statement released Wednesday to MMAjunkie, former flyweight contender Lineker (26-7 MMA, 7-2 UFC) said he heard Caraway’s (20-7 MMA, 5-2 UFC) callout on MMAjunkie Radio and welcomes a booking.

“I saw that Bryan Caraway wants to fight me,” Lineker wrote. “I also heard he’s friends with Francisco Rivera, so I guess he just wants to defend his buddy’s honor and have his back, and I’m absolutely fine with that.”

Caraway recently told MMAjunkie Radio he watched Lineker’s most recent bout, a “Fight of the Night” knockout of Francisco Rivera at UFC 191, and came away with a desire to fight the heavy-handed Brazilian.

“He beat Francisco, so I kind of want to get in there and mix it up with him,” Caraway said.

Lineker said a fight with the veteran of “The Ultimate Fighter 14” veteran is good for his career.

“Truthfully, I’m honored that Caraway wants to fight me,” he said. “I’ll graciously accept the fight if it fits the UFC’s purpose. I know it fits mine.

“I need another name in the division that I can knock out. People keep calling me small for the division, but as I continue to rack up these names, they’ll be calling me a giant at bantamweight.”

I have trouble believing the guy who was afraid to fight Diego Brando on TUF wants to fight Lineker. It seems more like a fight they made him take after turning down Uriah and others.

Caraway will probably end up winning, bringing great disgrace and shame to my family...as well as however much money I end up losing on Lineker. The more I want him to lose the more he steps up and wins.
