No. 7-ranked UFC flyweight John Lineker put on what may rank as his best UFC performance with a third round finish of the ultra-tough Alptekin Ozkilic on the main card of tonight’s (Wed., July 16, 2014) UFC Fight Night 45 from Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
“Hands of Stone” put on a show with his lightning fast power strikes, but Ozkilic refused to give up in the “Fight of the Night”-winning bout, only succumbing to a brutal series of left hooks in the final seconds of the bout.
It may have been the most exciting fight that the young UFC flyweight division has ever seen.
