Ian McCall talks about his bad luck and why he believes fighters are speaking up more now

Ian McCall is scheduled to return to the UFC octagon next week at UFC 208 as he will meet UFC newcomer Jarred Brooks on the fight card coming from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

UFC 208 will mark the first fight for McCall (13-5-1) since January of 2015 and he was initially scheduled to fight Neil Seery. However, Seery pulled out of the fight on Sunday evening due to a personal matter and the UFC immediately signed Brooks to fight McCall in Brooklyn.

During last week’s episode of “The MMA Reort Podcast,” McCall was a guest on the podcast to discuss his previously scheduled fight at UFC 208 against Seery and gave his thoughts on why he believes fighters are speaking out more on various issues related to the UFC.
