Before his fight with Alptekin Ozkilic...
In an interview with Combate.com, John Lineker said that he will have no problem making the flyweight limit for his fight with Alptekin Ozkilic at UFC Fight Night 45. He missed the limit for non-title fights in three of his past six fights.
On reaching the weight limit: "I'm fine with my weight now, I'm only 0,8 pound above of the divisional limit. Fortunately, we did a very good job with a lot of professionals: physician, nutritionist and physiologist. I'm sure that I'll be in the right weight with no problem. This first win is already mine."
On his training: "My camp was a little different for this time. My coaches focused a lot in wrestling and jiu-jitsu but it doesn't mean that I'm not ready to strike and go for the KO, which is my specialty. We studied a lot my opponent, I'm ready for any situation in the fight. I hope that I can be close to the belt again if I win."
