UFC bantamweight Scott Jorgensen is looking for a fresh start at flyweight against “Uncle Creepy” Ian McCall at UFC on FOX 9. The bout’s placement on the card is unclear at this time. UFC officials announced the bout earlier this evening.
Both fighters come into the bout with misleading marks in their last four fights with McCall at 1-2-1 and Jorgensen at 1-3. McCall picked up his first UFC victory by defeating Iliarde Santos at UFC 163 after dropping bouts to champion Demetrious Johnson and top contender Joe Benavidez. Jorgensen makes the move to bantamweight after dropping a fight to Urijah Faber at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale.
UFC on FOX 9 will take place in Sacramento, California on December 19 and features UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis against Josh Thomson. The night’s co-main event will see bantamweights Michael McDonald and Urijah Faber face off in a crucial bout in the division. The FOX network event will take place at the Sleep Train Arena (formerly the ARCO Arena), with prelims airing via FOX Sports 1 and Facebook.
