Ian McCall: Life is a little bit different when you've been dead   [View Full Version]

Zuffa recently added a 125 Bantamweight division, and a four-man tournament to crown the first champion:
Demetrious Johnson vs. Ian McCall
Joseph Benavidez vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani

In an interview with CageSide Sports, McCall discusses how far he has come.

"I am my own worst enemy. I have a lot of demons and they're still there. I still battle with them.

"But I've always had those values in the back of my head. Even though I've done horrible, horrible things to myself and other people, it's not like I don't feel bad.

"When I died I was sober for a while. I was doing good. And then I was getting getting tattooed. I was getting the heart tattooed on my chest saying Capulet and it's the sacred heart from Romeo and Juliet on Tybalt's chest. So I wanted that one. And I was like 'yeah, ok it's gonna hurt so I should so I should take something'. So I take a few oxycontin. And then I was getting anxiety so I'll take a few xanax. And then smoke some weed and then I think I drank some GHB. And then I woke up like a day or two later in the hospital.

McCall seems like a cool person. i have met mighty mouse, he's a local fighter in WA state. the guy is a class act and i will be rooting for him to be the new 125 champ. i still wish these two would have met in the 2nd round of the tourney.

I think Johnson's combination of speed and wrestling is going to be pretty much impossible for anyone at this weight class to deal with, with the exception of Benavidez. McCall seems like a pretty cool guy from the interview, I'll root for him, but have to take Johnson to win.

I like Benevidez

McCall won me over as a fan when he was on MMA@Work. Other than having an interest in fashion and 'Romeo and Juliet' being his favorite movie, he seems like a super chill dude.
