The most consistently overweight fighter in UFC history has done it again, folks. Weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 56: Shogun vs. St. Preux just concluded in Uberlandia, Brazil, with everybody hitting their marks except for — you guessed it — flyweight John Lineker, who came in at 126.7 on his first attempt.
That’s not quite as bad when Lineker weighed in at 127 pounds for his Octagon debut at UFC on FOX 3, or when he weighed in at 129 pounds before UFC 163, or when he weighed in at 128 pounds before UFC Fight Night 30, but still dude, get it together for God’s sake. Lineker also missed weight on his first attempt before UFC 169, but made it on his second try. Maybe the same thing will happen today and he won’t be responsible for a fourth catchweight fight in the UFC. We’ll update you after LOLineker‘s final appearance on the scale.
Update: Lineker made 126 pounds on his second try. But that’s five times out of eight UFC weigh-ins where Lineker hasn’t hit the mark on his first attempt — a 37.5% success rate. Not the kind of stat you want to be known for.
