Dillashaw vs Lineker Set for UFC 207

The top two contenders in the bantamweight division will square off on Friday, December 30, when former world champion TJ Dillashaw faces Brazilian knockout artist John Lineker in a UFC 207 bout at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC 207 features a pair of 135-pound championship fights, as Amanda Nunes puts her UFC women's bantamweight title on the line against Ronda Rousey, and Dominick Cruz defends the men's bantamweight crown against Cody Garbrandt.

Eager to earn a shot at regaining his title, Dillashaw's only loss in the last three years has been via split decision to Cruz in January of 2016. But after defeating Raphael Assuncao at UFC 200 in July, the Coloradan knows that a win over the No. 2-ranked Lineker could cement his place in line for a crack at the winner of UFC 207's co-main event. Expecting to put a dent in those plans is "Hands of Stone" Lineker, who is unbeaten in four straight since moving to the UFC's bantamweight division, most recently defeating John Dodson in October.
