Flyweight’s Head To FOX Event | Louis Gaudinot vs. John Lineker Booked


Flyweights are set to grace the UFC’s third trip to FOX now that Louis Gaudinot vs. John Lineker are booked for the UFC on FOX 3 card.

UFC officials announced the matchup today.

UFC on FOX 3 is set to take place in New Jersey from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford on May 5. In the main event lightweights Nate Diaz and Jim Miller will throw down in a five-round non-title fight.

A cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter 14”, Gaudinot will seek his first UFC win in his flyweight debut. In his first post-TUF 14 fight he dropped his first contest to Johnny Bedford in the season finale. He now moves to the UFC’s newly minted flyweight class, which is more suitable for his frame.

Welcoming Gaudinot to the 125 pound weight class will be promotional newcomer and Brazilian Native, John Lineker. He brings into his UFC debut a 13-fight win streak.

  1. Blazin saddles says:

    Nice I like this guy! cant wait for the UFC to build this 125 pound weight class

  2. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Louis got manhandled in his last fight. I’m glad he can fight people his own size now.

  3. The Dude says:

    Exactly, will be nice to see him fight in his proper division! and it’s exciting to see all these small guys getting booked! now only if they will close the gap between 205 and heavyweight , fighters will be set!

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      I wonder if that will thin out the competition of they do that to the 205 and heavyweight division?

      • G money says:

        It will level the playing field, let the Overeems and the Carwins and The lesnar type of fighters, let the Pat Barry’s and the Beltrans and the Velasquez framed guys do their own thing…

        Guys like Brandon Vera where forced to drop down because he couldnt compete with the giants, but now his chest bones stick out like three or four inches… he belongs a division up, but cant compete with the big guys so this division is needed in my opinion!

  4. jason says:

    Well, lets hope he fixes his hair!

  5. Duane says:

    Wow i didnt expect to see this guy again. He got tossed up pretty bad, dude is to little IMO.

  6. t says:
