Ian McCall’s next fight will take place this December, as the flyweight has inked a deal with Rizin FF.
McCall joins the world grand prix for the promotion, which continues December 29 from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. McCall (13-5-1) will meet Manel Kape (7-1) in a quarterback round contest.
The 33-year-old McCall was struck with bad luck over the last three years, as six planned bouts were cancelled either due to his own injury or that of his scheduled opponent. McCall fought just one during that time period.
Kyoji Horiguchi is also in the grand prix, which concludes December 31 with the semifinals and finals that night.
