UFC bantamweight John Lineker has only a single loss in his last nine UFC outings. His only loss came at the hands of the current bamtamweight king T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 207, while he has had notable victories over John Dodson, Marlon Vera, Ian McCall, etc. The UFC recently announced a September Fight Night event for Sao Paulo, Brazil and Lineker is eager to headline the card against a top five opponent.

Lineker recently made an appearance on MMA Fighting’s, The MMA Hour. On the show he said the following about his intentions to soon challenge for the title:

I want to fight as soon as possible, I have no idea who I’m fighting next, the division is crowded now, but I want to fight soon.

I want a top 5, I want the belt. I’m going after that, My only loss [in the division] was to the champion T.J. Dillashaw, and that doesn’t erase what I’ve done inside the UFC, my place in the ranking, so I want to fight someone at the top. I want a top 5 to make sure I get real quick to the belt.

It’s always good to fight a main event to be prepared for a title fight, I fight well in five-round fights, I’ve shown that, so it would be good to have another five-round fight to prepare for a title shot.
