When John Lineker failed to make weight for the 1,500th time prior to his Fight Night 56 co-main event scrap against Ian McCall, “Uncle Creepy” responded with quite possibly the most epic weigh-in trolljob this side of Roy Nelson’s fat suit. Less than 24 hours later, however, it was McCall who found himself physically unable to compete due to a last-minute illness, and the fight was scrapped.
Thankfully, UFC.com announced earlier this evening that the battle of top flyweight contenders is back on. McCall and Lineker has been rescheduled for the main card of UFC 183: Silva vs. Diaz on January 31st in Las Vegas.
“Looks like fat boy finally said yes,” McCall posted to Sqor just hours ago, which seems like a real dick thing to say about a guy who already forgave you for being a loud-mouthed pecker that pulled out just moments before you were supposed to bang. God, that’s gotta be some kind of record for sex puns in a single sentence. Weiner.
One thing’s for sure, there’s no way that McCall vs. Lineker ever lives up to likes of Martinez vs. Zimmer, which set the gold standard for fat guy vs. obnoxious a-hole fights.
