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 companyâ€™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 isnâ€™t to be forgotten about either.
McCall went online last night to issue a warning to Johnson to let him know heâ€™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 â€œMighty Mouseâ€.
â€œI’m coming for ya,â€ posted McCall on The Underground. â€œHold onto my belt for me in the meantime.â€
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 yearâ€™s end.
