John Lineker Credits His Manager With Helping Him Win At UFC on FUEL TV 6
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.13.2012



In an interview with MMA Junkie, flyweight John Lineker gave his manager Alex Davis credit for helping him win at UFC on FX 6.

Lineker (20-6 MMA, 1-1 UFC) was heavy for his UFC debut and lost by submission to The Ultimate Fighter 14 cast member Louis Gaudinot in a catchweight fight at UFC on FOX 3 in May. But he then hired a manager who helped him to get ready in order to gain his eventual win over Yasuhiro Urushitani by decision.

On his first fight: "In my first fight in the UFC, it was the first time I had ever traveled outside Brazil. I had no help or support, and I really suffered from that. This time around I had my trainer, Marcelo Ribeiro, with me the whole time and Alex Davis, who now is my manager, organized everything and came with me to make sure things ran smoothly. It was a huge difference from the first time around."

On the next flight to Brazil: "It is a 24-hour flight from Brazil to Macau, and Alex was worried that this would give my opponent a big advantage since he was coming from Japan, which is only a five-hour flight and just a one-hour time difference. Not only that, but this is only my second time traveling outside of Brazil. Alex made us do a 24-hour layover in Paris, made me work out when we landed and insisted I not sleep until it was nighttime in France. We then repeated the same thing when we got to Macau. In the beginning, I was thinking he was being a pain, but I now know that this made a big difference and enabled me to adjust to the different time zone and not be affected by jet lag. I was able to fight three full rounds without tiring."

On who he wants to thank: "I would like to thank God, my trainer Marcelo Ribeiro for his dedication and Alex Davis for giving me 100-percent support. I am really happy to have been able to show a little of what I can do. I will continue to improve, I will look for the 125-pound title, and I will bring the belt back to Brazil and to my hometown of Paranagua."
