With Yair Rodriguez out of his UFC 228 bout vs. Zabit Magomedsharipov, bantamweight John Lineker is willing to step up.

Zabit Magomedsharipov (15-1) is in need of a new opponent at UFC 228 after Yair Rodriguez withdrew from injury. The rising featherweight star is on an 11-fight winning streak, with three of those wins coming inside the Octagon.

Yeah I don’t think that’s happening. There is about a foot height difference between the two.

The guy that got cut from last TUF Gianetti is the front-runner to fight Zabit @ 228. Sacrificial lamb.

Pretty ballsy move by lineker. I'd love to see this fight happen, even with the comical height difference. Better than beating a no name

No kidding. Figure Zabit was -600 over Yair. He'd be at least -500 to -800 over Lineker and over Giannetti I couldn't see anything less than -1000 to -1200 and that's not even being a Zabit fan. Giannetti would get tooled so hard and Lineker wouldn't even be able to get in on Zabit.

Don't forget that Lineker is an absolute gremlin who took 3 rounds of Killashaw and (while soundly beat) never stopped. He might get styled on but he could also launch a missile into the midsection (like Mendes did on McKenzie).

True, and Zabit’s body from his hip to shoulders is incredibly long.

Weird how they didn’t give Gianetti a contract- the guy is pretty talented, is young and showed a lot of improvement in the time he was in the house.

What I don’t understand is how they cut a guy like Gianetti and keep John Gunther who is an absolute punching bag.
