Ian McCall: Not happy with my career right now
UFC flyweight Ian McCall appeared recently on MMAJunkie Radio, and discussed his fight Joseph Benavidez at UFC 156 on Feb. 2 in Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center.
“I’m no longer happy with my career at this point,” McCall admitted to MMAjunkie.com Radio. “I need a win. I came to the UFC claiming to be world champion. Now I’m 0-1-1, and I’m definitely not happy about it.”
“I’m going to prove to the world that I’m not just a show-off. I can actually win.”
“People keep saying, ‘Oh, you’re going to get a title shot after this.’ I mean, think about. Honestly, neither of us deserve it. I think Demetrious beat both of us. I would say maybe this one, if I win it convincingly, and then fight whoever else after this. Then maybe.
“Honestly, I’ll take a title shot at any point. I’m not going to turn that down. But I don’t mind working for it. I’m not some guy that’s just going to talk and talk and talk and say, ‘I deserve this,’ and ‘I deserve that.’ I deserve a fight. Once I win, we’ll talk about what I deserve and what I should be doing.”
“I think I’m going to win that word title back in 2013.”
