Ian McCall Has Fifth UFC Fight In A Row Cancelled

Ian McCall just can’t get a break as he’s now had his fifth UFC fight booking in a row cancelled after Neil Seery pulled out of his fight at UFC 208 on February 11th due to his mother-in-law passing away.

‘Uncle Creepy’ last fought in January of 2015 against John Lineker, losing out by unanimous decision.

He was then scheduled to fight Dustin Ortiz in August of that year, but suffered an injury that forced him out of the bout.

It would be almost a year later before McCall decided to push aside talk of retiring and agreed to fight Justin Scoggins at UFC 201, but disaster struck again when his opponent was pulled from the show on the week of the fight after failing to make weight.

His bad luck continued in September of 2016 when Ray Borg fell ill three days before their fight at UFC 203.

Then came the first time McCall was matched up with Neil Seery at UFC Fight Night 99 in November, which fell through after he took ill the day before the fight.

The fight was rescheduled for UFC 208 and now the unthinkable has happened yet again.

Spare a though for Seery in all this though. This is the second time that what was supposed to be his retirement bout has been cancelled, and in this case under particularly heartbreaking circumstances due to the loss of a family member.
