Ex-UFC fighter Ian McCall joins Rizin's batamweight grand prix, debuts DEC. 29
Due to an infamous run of bad luck, Ian McCall has fought just once since July 2014. But that could soon change – in a big way. Officials today announced McCall (13-5-1), a former UFC flyweight contender who’s No. 13 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA flyweight rankings, has joined the organization’s world bantamweight grand prix as a wild card and is set for a promotional debut at Rizin FF 8. “Rizin FF 8: World Grand Prix 2nd Round” takes place Dec. 29 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, and it streams in North America on FITE TV. McCall, who could now fight three times in just three days, meets 23-year-old Portuguese fighter Manel Kape (7-1), who scored a knockout win over Erson Yamamoto this past weekend at Rizin FF 7 in an opening-round matchup. McCall vs. Kape is one of four quarterfinal-round matchups slated for Rizin FF 8.

Rousimar Palhares' controversial split-decision loss at FNG 73 overturned
Rousimar Palhares’ split-decision loss to Shamil Amirov at Fight Nights Global 73 has been overturned to a draw. Fight Nights Global President Kamil Gadzhiev said the initial result – announced without scores at the Sept. 4 event – was changed after the bout was reviewed by the Russian MMA Union. “If fighters are not happy with the decision, fighters themselves, or their management, send an official protest letter to the Russian MMA Union,” Gadzhiev today told MMAjunkie. “They invite three new judges, they watch again, and they can change the decision. Sometimes, they change the decision.”

Oooooooookay.

LFA 16 Weigh-in Results: Johnny Bedford, Jimmy Flick Cleared for Conflict
Houston-based Legacy Fighting Alliance will stay in the great state of Texas on Friday as The Bomb Factory in Dallas will serve as the host venue for LFA 16. Johnny Bedford is set to take on fellow bantamweight Jimmy Flick in the main event and at Thursday’s weigh-ins, both men were spot-on, giving the event the expected green light. Flick, from nearby Oklahoma, has had a topsy-turvy run of luck inside the cage over the last five years. Having fought sparingly during the span, “The Brick” has gone just 2-3 and is coming off a second-round knockout loss at Legacy FC 63 in December. Flick is gunning to get back on track and when he stepped onto the scale, he came in officially at 135.25 pounds.
