John Lineker Fined For Failing To Make Weight, UFC Fight Night 30 Bout Against Phil Harris Now 128-Pound Catchweight

UFC (cough) "flyweight" John Lineker has decided against cutting an additional two pounds after coming in heavy for his 125-pound scrap against Phil Harris at UFC Fight Night 30 on Oct. 26, 2013 in Manchester, England. Instead, he'll pay 25-percent of his show purse, according to MMA Weekly, forcing the bout to be moved to a 128-pound catchweight fight. Not that it matters to Phil Harris, who did what he was supposed to do and tipped the scale without incident. See how it all went down in our UFC Fight Night 30 weigh ins video replay right here. And for the record, this is Lineker's third offense in just five UFC fights, a statistic surely not lost on promotion president Dana White. Photo via Esther Lin for MMA Fighting.
