Ian McCall-Iliarde Santos Set For UFC 163

According to a report by Ataque Total, former flyweight champion Ian McCall will return to action at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Pettis against Iliarde Santos. The bout has yet to be announced formally by the UFC.

The card takes place August 3 from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Jose Aldo defends his UFC featherweight title against Anthony Pettis in the main event.

McCall (11-4-1) has yet to score a victory since joining the UFC. The former Tachi Palace Fights champion has lost to Joseph Benavidez and UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, along with also fighting Johnson to a draw.

Santos (27-7) lost his UFC to Yuri Alcantara earlier this year. That snapped a six-fight win streak for the Brazilian.
