John Lineker was released by the promotion this week, ESPN confirmed with his manager, Alex Davis, on Wednesday. MMA Junkie was the first to report the news.
The decision comes on the heels of Lineker withdrawing from UFC Greenville two weeks ago due to a cut he sustained just two days before the card. Lineker was scheduled to be in the co-main event against Rob Font.
Lineker (31-9) was on a two-fight winning streak and had won eight of nine before losing to Cory Sandhagen by split decision at UFC Fort Lauderdale in April.
