Ulysses Gomez Gets the Call to Replace Ian McCall at UFC on Fox 4

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Ulysses Gomez
His nickname may be ‘Useless’ but long time flyweight contender Ulysses Gomez is anything but that, so the UFC has brought him in to fill a slot voided by another top 125lber.

Gomez will step in to replace Ian McCall on the upcoming UFC on Fox 4 card on Aug 4 as he faces John Moraga in an undercard bout.

UFC officials announced the new bout on Monday.

With an 9-2 record overall, Gomez has been a mainstay of the flyweight world over the last couple of years outside of a brief stop at bantamweight once upon a time.

A winner of his last two-fights in a row, Gomez is a multi-time veteran of Tachi Palace Fights as well as a lone performance in Bellator Fighting Championships, where he picked up a win as well.

Gomez is a former Tachi Palace Fights flyweight champion, a promotion that helped launch the careers of many top 125lb fighters including Ian McCall.

Now Gomez will step in to replace McCall as he faces Moraga at UFC on Fox 4 next Saturday night in Los Angeles.

    hope this is legitimate news and not another hype hoax. if so, solid signing and good replacement.

    I was hoping he would fight Roy Nelson. This guy is another hyped-up fighter who has beaten absolutely no one credible. Let him fight some real fighters in the UFC and if he survives, then come back and say how good he is. Until then, he is NOT in the top ten.
