This time he’s been removed from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 99 matchup against Neil Seery. McCall (13-5-1) has now had his third straight fight cancelled. He was set to fight Dustin Ortiz at UFC Fight Night 72, but was forced off due to injury.  Then he was slated to return July at UFC 201, then at UFC 203.
