MMA Odds and Ends for Friday: Ian McCall vs Ray Borg booked and more

UFC On FX: Weigh-InFresh off a fight having been taken out from under him, Ian McCall already had a new one booked as he’s expected to face prospect Ray Borg at UFC 203 in Cleveland next month. McCall was initially supposed to face Justin Scoggins this past weekend for UFC 201, but Scoggins missed weight badly and McCall refused to fight at a catchweight after losing his previous catchweight bout against John Lineker. Also announced, another pivotal flyweight match-up between Jussier “Formiga” De Silva against Dustin Ortiz in a bout which likely will allow one of the fighters to get in the mix among the contenders in the division. Last but not least, heavy hitters Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva have been booked in a heavyweight scrap in a bout which is almost certain to end in a knockout. UFC 203  September 10. 2016 Ian McCall (13-5-1) vs. Ray Borg (9-2-0)   UFC Fight Night 95  September 24, 2016 Jussier Formiga (18-4-0) vs. Dustin Ortiz (15-5-0) Roy Nelson (21-13-0) vs. Antonio Silva (19-9-1)
