UFC 207: TJ Dillashaw vs. John Lineker full fight video highlights

Watch highlights of T.J. Dillashaw’s dominant win over John Lineker at UFC 207.

T.J. Dillashaw almost certainly sealed himself the next bantamweight title shot, as he dominated John Lineker on the main card of UFC 207: Nunes vs. Rousey. The former champion outstruck the Brazilian, repeatedly took him down, and hammered away with vicious ground-and-pound throughout the fight. Dillashaw neutralized Lineker’s trademark whirlwind of stand-up violence, and presumably we’ll be seeing him and Cody Garbrandt do battle later this year.
