It appears an excellent flyweight bout has been booked between Ian McCall and Scott Jorgensen, which has the makings to be an instant classic. This should make for an exciting bout, where the winner has the chance to challenge for the belt, which is currently being held by Demetrious Johnson.

This will be Jorgensen’s debut in the flyweight division, and it will be interesting to see if he can utilize his size and strength to gain the upper hand on McCall, who has been a staple for the MMA‘s flyweight division for many years now. Jorgensen is coming off a deflating KO loss to Eddie Wineland. It was his first loss by way of KO, which is the main reason he is moving down to the flyweight division. Jorgensen has always been a powerful puncher and is great at submissions, and it will be very intriguing to see him compete in an even lighter weight class.

McCall comes into this fight off an much-needed, unanimous decision win over Iliarde Santos, a win that showcased McCall’s dynamic striking and excellent footwork. A win over Jorgensen would be huge for McCall’s career, and might even give him a chance to compete for the belt again. McCall has been competitive with the current champ, Johnson, so he will do everything in his power to get back to that belt.

Both of these fighters are known for their exciting styles, and they are always looking to finish, whether it’s on the feet or on the ground.
