UFC 201: Ian McCall Comments on Justin Scoggins’ Withdrawal
By FCF Staff
Ian McCall is understandably disappointed that he’s no longer fighting Justin Scoggins tomorrow, but the flyweight vet admits he feels bad for the rising fighter.
Scoggins was forced to withdraw from UFC 201 yesterday, after he incurred issues while trying to make weight for Saturday’s event. MMA Junkie.com caught up with McCall after the bout had been cancelled, and here is some of what he had to say about the situation:
“Whatever,” McCall said. “As much as I like Justin, I want to be a (expletive) and say something, but whatever. Weight cutting isn’t good for you, and if you don’t do it right – and he’s young, he’s probably stupid about it. But he’s a good fighter, so hopefully this won’t tarnish his name too much.
“It’s weird that I feel bad for him, but this weight cutting (expletive) is horrible for you. I’m just getting it done because I’m getting paid.”
McCall, who hasn’t fought since January, 2015, went on to say that he’s hoping to secure a bout for the August 20th, UFC 202 card.
