Bio

As his nickname implies, John Lineker is known for his power and aggressiveness inside the UFC Octagon.

Lineker made his professional MMA debut in September 2008. Competing exclusively in his native Brazil, he won 19 of his first 24 bouts before signing with the UFC. Lineker’s debut in the UFC came at a UFC on Fox event in May 2012.

Lineker has achieved success thus far in the UFC, gaining a four-fight win streak and then a five-fight win streak. But he also currently holds the dubious distinction of being the fighter to miss weight the most times in UFC history, missing weight five times.
