Ian McCall: Fans got robbed of a magical fourth-round and my Mortal Kombat finishPosted on March 13, 2012, 03:47 PM by Joey Santosus
Top Flyweight contender Ian McCall, who fought to a draw with Demetrious Johnson in the quarterfinal round of the 125-pound tournament, looks back on the match-up and discusses their impending rematch. McCall admits that he is happy to have another shot at advancing to the final, but says that fans were robbed of a "magical fourth-round."
"It was very emotionally draining. At that point, I was just happy to still be alive in the tournament. I think that the adoring public got robbed of the magical fourth round and my Mortal Kombat finish, but that's about it. ... They haven't told me anything yet. They kept saying, "April, April." I wanted to co-headline the Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans card, but that didn't happen. So, I'm just waiting on the phone call. I want to get this over with as soon as possible. ... They always call him the best wrestler in the 125-pound class, but shockingly - I am. So, I'll definitely exploit that next time around."
