After missing weight three times...
Demetrious Johnson recently spoke about John Lineker being a potential contender for his flyweight title and more. Check out the highlights:
On Lineker's repeated inability to make weight: "As far as him not making weight three times, he's still in the UFC, so there's nothing I can do about it. If it was me, I would have cut him, but that's just me."
On the importance of making weight: "My coaches tell me I have two jobs to do. One is make weight, and [the other is] fight. That's all I've got to do...Part of the job when you sign a contract that says you've got to make 125. Not 128, not 130."
