MANCHESTER UFC Fight Night 30 fighter weigh-ins took place today, and headliners Lyoto Machida (185) and
Mark Munoz (186) each made weight for their contest without issue. The same could not be said for top flyweight contender John Lineker.
The weigh-ins took place in front of a rowdy crowd at Manchester Central in England. The following day's FOX Sports 2-televised event takes place at the nearby phones4U Arena.
Despite competing for the first time as a middleweight, former UFC light-heavyweight champion Machida had no problem making weight in his new division, not even needing the one pound allowance. However, flyweight Lineker weighed 128 pounds and was given an additional hour to lose the necessary two pounds. He ultimately elected not to cut the remaining weight and was fined 20 percent of his purse. Lineker has now missed the flyweight mark in three of his five UFC appearances.

Lyoto Machida (185) vs. Mark Munoz (186)
