There is no questioning that Ian McCall is one of the best flyweights in the world, but “Uncle Creepy” isn’t satisfied with his current status in the UFC. McCall has fought the champion Demetrious Johnson twice now, and he still doesn’t have a win in the Octagon. McCall currently has Joseph Benavidez in his cross hairs for their match-up at UFC 156, but as of right now the fan-favorite is directly south of satisfied with the way things have gone for him so far in the world’s foremost MMA promotion.
McCall told MMAJunkie:
“I’m no longer happy with my career at this point. I need a win. I came to the UFC claiming to be world champion. Now I’m 0-1-1, and I’m definitely not happy about it.”
On Being a number one contender:
“People keep saying, ‘Oh, you’re going to get a title shot after this. I mean, think about. Honestly, neither of us deserve it. I think Demetrious beat both of us. I would say maybe this one, if I win it convincingly, and then fight whoever else after this. Then maybe…. Honestly, I’ll take a title shot at any point. I’m not going to turn that down. But I don’t mind working for it. I’m not some guy that’s just going to talk and talk and talk and say, ‘I deserve this,’ and ‘I deserve that.’ I deserve a fight. Once I win, we’ll talk about what I deserve and what I should be doing.”
