LAS VEGAS -- The scale can sometimes be a tougher opponent for John Lineker than the man set to stand across from him in the Octagon. In three of Lineker's seven UFC fights, he has come in over the 126-pound flyweight limit. In just about every other one, even if Lineker makes weight he needs at least two tries to do it.

Although the UFC 181 title fight ended in a razor-thin split decision, most could tell that Johny Hendricks was not himself.
