5 Oz Exclusive: Joe McCall out of May 31 EliteXC fight with Carlton Haselrig has learned through sources close to Joe McCall that he will be unable to compete on the May 31 EliteXC undercard due to unforeseen family obligations.

As we reported yesterday, McCall, who is 4-0 in his fighting career, was scheduled to fight former NFL All-Pro offensive lineman and six-time NCAA wrestling champion Carlton Haselrig, who is 1-0 in his mixed martial arts career.

Former Giants fullback Jarrod Bunch and former IFL heavyweight Bryan Vetell had previously been approached as opponents for Haselrig but the camps were unable to come to an agreement with EliteXC due to financial concerns.

No replacement for McCall has yet been finalized.
