He's not pleased about being winless in the UFC...
Ian McCall recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Joseph Benavidez at UFC 157, his satisfaction with his career and more. Check out the highlights:
On not having a win in the UFC yet: "I'm no longer happy with my career at this point. 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."
On his four fight win streak that preceded his UFC signing: "That's long gone. That's long over with."
On his goal for UFC 158: "I'm going to prove to the world that I'm not just a show-off. I can actually win."
On the fight being a potential #1 contender match: "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."
