Just weeks after questioning his own fighting future, flyweight Ian McCall now says he’s got a return fight on the docket.
In a post to Twitter Friday night, McCall said he’ll be fighting Justin Scoggins at UFC 201 in Atlanta, Ga., on July 30.
The 31-year-old McCall hasn’t fought since January of 2015, where he dropped a decision to John Lineker at UFC 183. The veteran flyweight has fought just six times in the Octagon since 2012, going 2-3-1 in that stretch while dealing with numerous injuries.
Scoggins, 24, is 4-2 in his UFC run thus far, and has won two straight fights into this event. He won consecutive fights to start off his UFC run, then lost to both Dustin Ortiz and John Moraga in back to back fights in 2014. He got back on track from there, defeating Josh Sampo in early 2015 and then Ray Borg in his most recent appearance in February.
UFC 201 takes place from Philips Arena in Atlanta, headlined by the UFC Welterweight Title fight between Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley. A Flyweight Title fight between Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and Wilson Reis is set for the co-main event.
