UFC 224 Brian Kelleher vs. John Lineker | Fight Recap Review by Hollywood Joe Tussing

UFC 224  The second fight on the main card  Brian Kelleher  vs. John Lineker  just wrapped up with another spectacular knock out, this time by John Lineker 


Round 1

The first round started out with John Lineker thowing extremely wild body hooks, wild hooks to the head, wild overhands, and Brian Kelleher was just on his bicycle, on his back foot and just can’t get anything started.   Kelleher  was trying to counter punch and he actually was able to counter a lazy kick by Lineker and rock Lineker just a bit.  But Lineker shook it off and continued to stalk throwing some very good hard punches to the body.  Lineker then rocked Kelleher with a left hook to the chin and the two found their way to the ground where then got to the fence and back to their feet.  For the remainder of the round Lineker continued to stalk Kelleher hard all around the octagon.

Round 2

In the second round Kelleher really just couldn’t get anything started.  Lineker wass chasing him all over the octagon and really pounding him in the body with hooks and hurts him around the liver.  Kelleher was not able to back up very well, as he was just moving straight backwards.

Round 3

That becomes a huge problem in the third round when John Lineker with one minute left throws a beautiful leaping left hook and puts Kelleher’s lights out.  Kelleher fell straight back to his back with his eyes wide open, but he was not home.  John Lineker showed his hands of stone even when he was that tired in the third round.   Kelleher was just starting to get his jab going and was finding some real estate for it, and Lineker looked like his gas tank was empty, and then BANG, he has got that much power that with just one punch he can just put any bantamweights lights out.

This was an beautiful performance by John Lineker and it was sad to see Brian Kelleher go back to the journeymen line and it looks as if that is where he will spend the rest of his UFC career.  I would like to see John Lineker take his cardio to the next level and get a title shot in the near future.
