Lineker out of UFC Fight Night Greenville bout

John Lineker (31-9) is out of Saturday's UFC Fight Night Greenville bout against Rob Font (16-4).

According to Lineker's manager Alex Davis, Lineker suffered a cut above his left eyebrow late last night while cutting weight. Davis, who was not with Lineker when the incident happened, said the circumstances surrounding how he suffered the cut were unclear at this time. Lineker was sent to the hospital and had the cut glued together in hopes of salvaging the fight, however, he ultimately decided to withdraw, Davis said.

Font was originally scheduled to fight Cody Stamman on the card. Lineker stepped in as a late replacement two weeks ago after Stamman suffered an injury. The UFC has yet to confirm whether Font will now be removed from the card, as well.

The event, which will mark the promotion's first in South Carolina, will be headlined by Renato Moicano vs. Chan Sung Jung.
