There was something that wasn’t quite right about UFC 191, and it wasn’t that it was a Demetrious Johnson headlined card that was doomed to fail commercially.

Losing badly to a fighter who you were heavily favored to defeat would humble most fighters. Not UFC flyweight Ian McCall.

When John Lineker weighed in four pounds overweight for his UFC 183 bout against Ian McCall, he gave up the right to compete for the UFC Flyweight title, should he defeat his opponent. After losing a one-sided first round, the Brazilian hurt “Uncle Creepy” in the second, and while he didn’t score the knockout finish,…
