The two came out firing hard and wild punches, and after Lineker got the better of the exchanges, he sunk in a fight ending guillotine choke.
The “Performances of the Night” went to Anthony Johnson and Raquel Pennington.
Johnson put away light-heavyweight Jimi Manuwa in the second round with two cracking right hands, and Pennington tapped Jessica Andrade out with a rear-naked-choke, late in round two.
The winners earned an extra $50,000 each.
UFC 191 took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
