It's his third miss in five appearances...
Alex Davis, the manager for John Lineker, recently spoke with MMAjunkie about Lineker missing weight for his fight atainst Phil Harris at UFC Fight Night 30 tomorrow. Check out the highlights:
On what may come after this fight: "It's too soon to say right now. He still has to win this fight, and that's what we will focus on for now."
On missing weight for this fight: "We got in two days early, and we were on track. It seemed everything would be fine, but then he locked up, and the weight simply would not come off anymore. And even stranger, the minute he got off the scales and was in the backstage area, he started sweating again, even though he had not sweated at all since last night."
On the consequences: "He got fined and probably spoiled his chance at a title shot for right now. We'll decide what we'll do next after Saturday night."
