UFC Greenville Co-Main Event Changed For A Second Time
Hours before Friday’s weigh-in, the UFC Greenville co-main event has undergone a second change, as John Lineker has been pulled from the card.
Lineker, who replaced Cody Stamann with a month’s notice, has been taken off the June 22nd card due to a cut over his eyebrow.
First reported by MMAJunkie, Lineker, who was set to face Rob Front, suffered the cut while training on Thursday night, making this the second time Lineker was pulled from a card this year, with Lineker yanked from a fight with Cory Sandhagen in January.
There is no update as of this post on what will happen for Front, who last fought at UFC on FOX 31, taking a decision win from Sergio Pettis.
