Congratulations to my friend Ian McCall for his awesome performance vs. Jussier da Silva, the number one ranked flyweight in the world and undefeated coming into their match on the Tachi Palace fights card February 18th, 2011. I just got a chance to watch the video of the fight and it was really something!
For the rest of the fight da Silva tried in vain for another opportunity to submit the resilient McCall. Too bad his efforts were met with nothing but upper cuts, jabs, overhand rights and lefts and the one time da Silva did manage to get McCall down (at the end of the third round) he was given a steady diet of elbows strikes to the top of the head. That’s how the fight ended with McCall delivering elbow strikes and giving every ounce of fight that he possessed in his body to the top of da Silva’s head.
Now 9-2 with his only losses coming to Dominick Cruz (UFC 135 lb. Champion) and Charlie Valencia (one tough motherfucker), Mr. Ian McCall is in line for a title shot in August, 2011 and trust me he is going to win that fight and stand alone above the flyweight division.
Congratulations to you Ian and keep up the destruction my man. You are bad ass.
