NEWARK, N.J. – Although John Lineker (23-7 MMA, 4-2 UFC) showed no ill effects from a tough weight cut, he still couldn’t stave off a strong finish by fellow flyweight Ali Bagautinov (13-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) on Saturday at UFC 169.

Their bout, which was part of the event’s pay-per-view main card from Newark, N.J.’s Prudential Center, saw Bagautinov use key takedowns and some solid submission defense to avoid Lineker’s heavy hands.

Check out the highlights above. And don’t miss the rest of the highlights from Saturday’s card:
