Ian McCall Says He’s Not Happy With His Career

December 21, 2012 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Ian McCall recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Joseph Benavidez at UFC 157, his satisfaction with his career and more. Check out the highlights:

On not having a win in the UFC yet: “I’m no longer happy with my career at this point. I need a win. I came to the UFC claiming to be world champion. Now I’m 0-1-1, and I’m definitely not happy about it.”

On his four fight win streak that preceded his UFC signing: “That’s long gone. That’s long over with.”

On his goal for UFC 158: “I’m going to prove to the world that I’m not just a show-off. I can actually win.”

On the fight being a potential #1 contender match: “People keep saying, ‘Oh, you’re going to get a title shot after this.’ I mean, think about. Honestly, neither of us deserve it. I think Demetrious beat both of us. I would say maybe this one, if I win it convincingly, and then fight whoever else after this. Then maybe. Honestly, I’ll take a title shot at any point. I’m not going to turn that down. But I don’t mind working for it. I’m not some guy that’s just going to talk and talk and talk and say, ‘I deserve this,’ and ‘I deserve that.’ I deserve a fight. Once I win, we’ll talk about what I deserve and what I should be doing.”
