Ian McCall: Not happy with my career right now

Friday, December 21, 2012

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.”
