John Lineker Announces ONE Championship Signing
By FCF Staff
John Lineker has announced he’s signed with ONE Championship, following the recent news he had been released by the UFC.
Last week it was confirmed that the UFC had cut ties with Lineker, after he withdrew from UFC Greenville last month on short notice, due to a reported facial cut. Lineker was booked for that card after he publicly demanded the UFC give him a fight or release him.
The 29-year-old Lineker (31-9) recently announced his move to ONE with the tweets below.
“ I will answer all the questions out there about myself in the Ring! People will be changing the channel to watch me fight! I will continue to do what I love! Fight and put on a show! Thank you 1 for having me! @Alexdavismma @ONEChampionship
