UFC flyweight Ian McCall has been released from jail after serving 17 days for a probation violation earlier this month in Irvine, Calif.

McCall began posting on his Twitter page on Thursday confirming his release, and McCall’s manager Jason House of Iridium Sports Agency also confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com independently.

“Free at last, free at last,” wrote McCall. “Time to get back to work.”

McCall was originally sentenced to 30 days in jail after being pulled over by California police, who found two outstanding warrants in his name. The warrants, according to McCall’s attorney, George Vargas, included one related to not completing 20 days of Cal Trans work stemming from a 2008 charge and the other for not showing up for court for a driving on a suspended license ticket that he thought he had handled.

McCall paid all the necessary fines in regards to the suspended license ticket, but was not aware that he had to appear in court at a later date as well. A warrant was issued for McCall’s arrest. Because of that and his previous entanglements with the law, it was considered a violation of his probation and he was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

The jail sentence was mandatory due to the previous arrest and probation violation.

Now the UFC flyweight is back home after serving 17 days of the sentence. He is already back in training awaiting word on his next fight in the Octagon.
