Ian McCall Has Been Going Through Some Rough Times, You Guys [VIDEO]

Once considered the #1 flyweight in the world, Ian McCall‘s stint in the Octagon has resulted in a goofy draw against Demetrious Johnson, followed by a non-goofy unanimous decision loss to Demetrious Johnson. If McCall wants to avoid the “UFC bust” label, he’ll need a fantastic showing this Saturday when he faces Joseph Benavidez on the UFC 156 main card. But judging from this new video profile from MMASucka, you have to wonder if his head’s in the right place. As Uncle Creepy puts it:

Been going through a lot on a personal note. It’ll all unfold sooner or later, but at least I have the gym, that’s my happy place at the moment. So as much drama as I’ve been dealing with at the moment, I have this place to make me happy, and at least I’m focused here…It’s all home stuff. I don’t live at home anymore, I’m separated, probably getting a divorce. Just stuff like that…I just want to get this [fight] over with, and be free and just be happy, finally — that’s how I look at it, get in there and I can be happy — and get it over with so I can fix my life.”

A man’s upper lip is one of the clearest signifiers of his emotional state, and as I see it, McCall’s lopsided moustache in the video is itself a symbol of the opposing forces that are pulling him off the straight path towards success; it’s a sign that he’s neglecting what’s important, not just in his grooming habits, but in his life. Or maybe, his moustache is a psychological anchor, tethering him to the old ways that have blocked him in the past. Indeed, you guys. Indeed.

You know what they say, Uncle Creepy. If you catch something and you love it, set it free. then hunt it down again and chain it up in your basement.

In related news: Look I know conventional wisdom says it's "wrong" to give a whiny bitch a head kick or a spinning back fist, but what if you just put her in a d'arce choke or a Peruvian neck tie?

His weight is down, and his energy is up? Sounds like he's already enjoying the T-boost from recent bachelorhood.

In other news, Dodson has a new girlfriend.

McCall got married? Well i think i figured out his problem. Dude needs to be single, picking up every skirt within (flyweight) reach. Once he starts up a new "look who i railed last night" thread on the UG, we'll be back to his old self in no time.

Probably no hope for the Joe B fight, tho.
shay mccall- February 2, 2013 at 11:54 am
he probably will go back to that. and come crying to me like normal. except this time i wont give a fuck
