Ian McCall won’t get a spot on UFC 202, but he will compete at UFC 203 next month.
McCall and Ray Borg were recently added to the September pay-per-view from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
This past weekend, “Uncle Creepy” was expected to make his return to action vs. Justin Scoggins. However, a day before weigh-ins, Scoggins was removed from the bout due to complications.
McCall (13-5-1) last fought in early 2015, falling to John Lineker via decision. That bout was contested at 130 pounds, which is why he refused to meet Scoggins at anything above the flyweight limit.
Borg (9-2) is coming off a decision loss to Scoggins that book-ends his other career loss to Dustin Ortiz. Between that, he won three in a row, including two via submission.
