This is the fifth time in his UFC career that Lineker has missed weight. Thirteen months later, they will face off in a fight that puts the victor one step closer to the 135-pound belt.

Ben Simmons Breaks Bone In Foot, No Timetable For Return

Simmons was the top pick after averaging 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game. Injuries of this nature are typically known as a Jones fracture, and require surgery plus an estimated eight weeks of recovery time. "I'm a lot stronger [now]", said Simmons. Although it's unfair to have expected Simmons to carry this still developing Philadelphia team to a playoff berth, his absence will leave a cavernous hole in coach Brett Brown's system.
