Despite John Lineker making weight on a second attempt, a planned co-main event flyweight contest between Ian McCall and Lineker has been scrapped for tonight’s UFC Fight Night 56 card.
McCall was forced out of the bout due to an illness, which is being reported as a viral infection. The fight was expected to help determine a No. 1 contender in the 125-pound division.
All planned fights for tonight will now air on either FOX Sports 1 or FOX Sports 2 beginning at 8 p.m. ET. FightLine will have complete coverage of all the action.
