Ian McCall has again been left without a fight after his opponent Ray Borg pulled out of UFC 203 just a couple of days before their fight due to an injury.
McCall had found himself in exactly the same position at UFC 201 in July when Justin Scoggins was forced to withdraw on two days notice due to weight cutting issues.
‘Uncle Creepy’ had been hoping to make his comeback after taking well over 18 months out of the sport dealing with his own injury woes and other business interests.
Now he’ll have to wait until a later date to finally get into the Octagon, but he’s remaining upbeat about the situation given that he’s still getting looked after by the UFC financially.
“I’m fine,” McCall told MMA Fighting.com. “I’m getting paid great money to have abs. It could be worse. I just really want to fight.”
McCall is now hoping to return in November, mentioning a fight with Neil Seery at UFC Fight Night 99 in Northern Ireland as one option that’s under consideration.
