By FCF Staff
After a planned bout between Brad Pickett and Ian McCall fell through last month, due to the latter being injured, it looks like the UFC is planning to rebook the fight for July 19th.
Pickett ended up scoring a decision win over Neil Seery at UFC FN 37 on March 8th, who had stepped in for the injured McCall. According to a new report from MMA Fighting.com, sources say that the UFC is hoping to reschedule Pickett-McCall for July 19th, in Dublin.
McCall (12-4-1) hasn’t fought since August, 2013, when he scored a UD win over Iliarde Santos at UFC 163. The flyweight contender is 2-2-1 in his last 5 contests.
Prior to facing Seery, Pickett (24-8) was tapped out by Michael McDonald at UFC FN 26. The British fighter is 3-2 in his last 5 bouts.
The upcoming, Dublin card will be hosted by the city’s O2 Arena. The main event has yet to be announced.
