Ian McCall has stayed relevant in the UFC’s growing Flyweight division even though he has only stepped inside the Octagon 6 times since 2012. McCall has amassed a 2-3-1 record with the promotion. This Saturday McCall will attempt to get back in the win column as he prepares to do battle with Neil Seery.
This will be Uncle Creepy’s 3rd attempt at fighting this year, as two opponents have withdrawn on him just days before the event. McCall was set to fight against Justin Scoggins at UFC 201, but Scoggins was forced to withdraw just days before their fight because he was unable to make the weight class. Uncle Creepy did not allow this to deter him, as he weighed in at the event even though he had no opponent. This went on to show the heart and determination of Uncle Creepy.
Ian McCall attempted a quick turn around and was scheduled to face off against Ray Borg at UFC 203. As Uncle Creepy’s luck would go, he was notified just days before the fight about his opponent withdrawing. With the talks of retirement just months before, this situation must have been mentally tough for Ian McCall.
Throughout McCall’s UFC career, he has withdrawn from UFC bouts 4 times due to injuries. Hopefully he will be able to turn his luck around, as he is currently scheduled to fight once again. McCall will now be fighting Dublin native Neil Seery in Belfast Ireland. Seery entered the UFC as the Cage Warriors Flyweight champion, and had a pretty big following. So far Seery has achieved a record of 3-3 with the UFC, with only one fight not going to the scorecards.
Ian McCall is currently ranked #5 in the division while Seery in unranked with the promotion. Soggins and Borg were both ranked, so this fight won’t have to much title implication. Especially with the new season of TUF, this division seems to be tied up until next Summer. Out of the Top 15 Flyweight Fights of All Time, Ian Mcall has been involved in 5 of those fights. His Draw with UFC Champion Mighty Mouse, has been considered the Greatest Flyweight Fight of all Time. He always comes ready to go to war, and Uncle Creepy fans have grown anxious to see their hero step in the cage once again.
Will Ian McCall finally be successful in 2016? If he is able to leave this fight without any injuries, maybe a spot on UFC in Sacramento will be next for the former UFC Title Challenger.
