Now that the UFC has crowned its first flyweight champion in the form of Demetrious Johnson, the organization will have to start looking for contenders to challenge for the company’s newest belt. While it looks like an October 5 bout between John Dodson and Jussier da Silva will determine the first individual in that line, talented 125er Ian McCall recently made it clear he isn’t to be forgotten about either.
McCall went online last night to issue a warning to Johnson to let him know he’s out to settle a score. The pair has mixed it up on two previous occasions with one resulting in an errant Draw and the other a decision win for “Mighty Mouse”.
“I’m coming for ya,” posted McCall on The Underground. “Hold onto my belt for me in the meantime.”
The 11-3-1 McCall has not fought since his June loss to Johnson and does not have anything inked at the moment, seeing an expected match-up fall apart due to injury and an untimely arrest for some old warrants. However, he is expected to fight again before year’s end.
