Ian McCall has not fought since early 2015.
“Uncle Creepy” was expected to return to action Saturday night at UFC 201 vs. Justin Scoggins in the pay-per-view main card opener. However, Scoggins’ body stopped cutting weight Thursday and officials removed the entire fight.
McCall (13-5-1) will still receive his show money after successfully weighing in, according to a report by MMAjunkie.
“Whatever,” McCall said. “As much as I like Justin, I want to be a (expletive) and say something, but whatever. Weight cutting isn’t good for you, and if you don’t do it right – and he’s young, he’s probably stupid about it. But he’s a good fighter, so hopefully this won’t tarnish his name too much.”
A veteran of the sport, McCall understands all of the nuisances that go into the fight game.
“It’s weird that I feel bad for him, but this weight cutting (expletive) is horrible for you,” he said. “I’m just getting it done because I’m getting paid.”
