Former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ comptitor Louis Gaudinot will drop down to his natural weight class at 125lbs and face John Lineker at UFC on Fox 3 in New Jersey.

UFC officials announced the new bout on Friday.

Coming onto the 14th season of the ‘Ultimate Fighter’ the green-haired Guadinot was an early fan favorite for his relentless pace and style. Unfortunately as the season wore on all the way to the finale, it was painfully obvious that Gaudinot was out sized by much larger foes.

Lucky for him the UFC has now instituted a flyweight division so the one time 135lb fighter can drop down to his natural weight class to find a new home.

Facing Gaudinot in New Jersey will be UFC newcomer John Lineker.

A Brazilian with great credentials, Lineker comes to the UFC with a 19-5 record overall, having won his last 13 bouts in a row.

Lineker will meet Gaudinot on the preliminary portion of the UFC on Fox 3 show, most likely airing on Fuel TV.
