It looks like the UFC’s summer schedule could feature a bout with bantamweight contender, John Lineker.

The heavy handed fighter hasn’t fought since December, when Lineker lost via unanimous decision to former 135 champ, TJ Dillashaw. After the loss, Lineker revealed that he broke his jaw not long into the bout.

Well, recently MMA Fighting caught up with the Brazilian fighter, and Lineker reported that he expects to be ready to fight again in late July. Lineker also said the following:

“I’m already training well,” Lineker said. “I can’t get hit in the head yet. I’m using a helmet, but I’m already training well.”

It will be good to see Lineker throwing hands once again. Prior to facing Dillashaw, Lineker had won six straight fights.
