Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall made a recent appearance on Inside MMA to discuss the UFC’s addition of flyweights, and Jesus Christ, would you look at that guy. It’s like him and her had a baby. The long-haired surfer vibe that Ian used to rock in his WEC days is gone, replaced by a gentleman who looks like he might drive a surprise van in his spare time. Are the UFC’s fans ready for such mustachioed intensity?
I’ll give McCall credit, though: He’s a good talker, and every division needs at least one. After warping our minds with a statement like “I’m the greatest flyweight of all time, for the past year,” he follows it up with the more straightforward “I need my weight class, it’s mine, give it to me, because I’m gonna beat up everybody.” Demetrious Johnson responds in humble fashion, which is no way to get attention.
