MANCHESTER – Weight issues aside, John Lineker continues dominating the UFC’s flyweights. His UFC Fight Night 30 bout with Phil Harris was no different.

Their main-card fight, which aired on FOX Sports 2 from Phones4u Arena in Manchester, England, resulted in a rare body-shot knockdown as Lineker (23-6 MMA, 4-1 UFC), who missed weight for a third time, unloaded a blow to the gut, which set up the victory over Harris (22-11 MMA, 1-2 UFC).

Check out the highlights above.
