UFC’s John Lineker Reveals His Massive Weight Cutting Numbers

John-Lineker

The UFC’s most notorious weight-misser, John Lineker says he’s been cutting trying to cut 40 pounds every time he hits the UFC scales as a flyweight.

And while it seems like he’s missed that weight, more often than not, the UFC’s forced trip up a class still poses some problems.

Check it:

I will have to cut 30 pounds to fight at 135. I used to cut 40 to fight at flyweight. Bantamweight is my original weight class. I only cut down to 125 for the opportunity to fight in the UFC. The division was new in the UFC and they were looking for fighters. I had a good record, so they signed me.”
