UFC Issues Statement on Ian McCall Fight Cancellation | MMAWeekly.com


The UFC Belfast fight between Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall and Neil Seery was canceled on Friday. The bout’s cancellation, McCall’s fourth in four attempts to get in the Octagon, came when McCall fell ill.

The bout was intended to be 37-year-old Seery’s retirement bout. It wasn’t to be for the Dubliner, who wanted to end his career at the Northern Ireland event. 

Ian McCall - WEC 38Following the cancellation, UFC officials issued the following statement:

“On the advice of physicians, and with the athlete’s health and safety in mind, UFC has removed Ian McCall from his bout (Saturday) night against Neil Seery at UFC Fight Night: Mousasi vs. Hall 2 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, due to illness.

“UFC Fight Night: Mousasi vs. Hall 2 will proceed with 13 bouts. Seery will serve as a back-up in the event a flyweight from the card cannot compete.”

Seery weighed 126 pounds at the official early morning weigh-in. He will receive his show money, even if he doesn’t fight, which is likely. The only other flyweight bout on the card is a preliminary fight between Ali Bagautinov and Kyoji Horiguchi.
