Ian McCall released from jail after two weeks

|

Ian McCall, more prominently referred to as “Uncle Creepy” has been released from Orange County Central Men’s Jail after two weeks in custody.

The top-ranked flyweight competitor was arrested on August 14 in Invine, California due to a June charge of driving with a suspended license. McCall pleaded guilty to the charge and on August 21 was sentenced to one years probation while making his wallet $300 lighter.

McCall joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the early shades of 2012. The California resident was widely regarded as the number-one ranked fighter at 125-pounds but has since failed to get his hand raised inside the Octagon following a pair of fights with former bantamweight title-challenger Demetrious Johnson.

The pair of flyweight stand-outs would fight to a draw on Australian soil and due to an error from the New South Wales Control Board tabulating scores they didn’t go to a sudden death over-time. Instead, they rematched months later with Johnson decisively getting the win to advance to the finals of the inaugural flyweight championship series.
