At the official weigh-ins for tonight’s UFC Fight Night 99 event in Belfast, Northern Ireland, “Uncle Creepy” had his fight scrapped during fight weekend once again.

As we noted in our UFC Fight Night 99 weigh-in results on Friday, Ian McCall was pulled from his scheduled return to the Octagon yet again.

This time, McCall was the fighter pulled from the bout, which was scheduled to be against Neil Seery on the UFN 99 on the main card of the event, which airs exclusively via UFC Fight Pass from the SSE Arena in Belfast.

UFC.com issued the following statement regarding Ian McCall being pulled from the event less than 24 hours before his scheduled fight:

“On the advice of physicians, and with the athlete’s health and safety in mind, UFC has removed Ian McCall from his bout tomorrow night against Neil Seery at UFC Fight Night: Mousasi vs. Hall 2 in Belfast, Northern Ireland due to illness.

“UFC Fight Night: Mousasi vs. Hall 2 will proceed with 13 bouts. Seery will serve as a backup in the event a flyweight from the card cannot compete.”
