UFC flyweight Ian McCall has been released from the Orange County Central Men’s Jail after spending more than two weeks in custody.

McCall was arrested on Aug. 14 in Irvine, Calif., in relation to a June charge of driving with a suspended license. McCall was sentenced to one year of probation and $300 in fines after pleading guilty to the charge on Aug. 21, according to the Superior Court of California County of Orange website.

Known as “Uncle Creepy,” McCall first introduced himself to a national audience as a bantamweight in the WEC, going 1-2 in the organization before receiving his release in early 2009. After spending nearly two years on the sideline during which he battled drug addiction, McCall returned to competition in 2010 and soon made the cut to 125 pounds, where he found success competing for Tachi Palace Fights and, more recently, the UFC.

McCall was last seen squaring off with Demetrious Johnson in the semifinals of the UFC’s inaugural flyweight title tournament, fighting “Mighty Mouse” to a majority draw in their first encounter before dropping a unanimous nod to Johnson in the June 8 rematch. The 28-year-old was expected to return to action on Aug. 4 to face John Moraga, but McCall was forced to withdraw from that UFC on Fox 4 booking due to injury.
