Ian McCall may not have made it out of the UFC flyweight tournament and into the title fight, despite two attempts against Demetrious Johnson, but he’s not exactly out of the picture just yet.

He’ll get an opportunity to keep his UFC championship dreams alive when he faces John Moraga on Aug. 4 at UFC on Fox 4 in Los Angeles. UFC officials on Thursday announced the bout.

McCall (11-3-1) fought his way into the UFC via the WEC and Tachi Palace fights, waiting for the 125-pound weight class to open up. When it finally arrived, he slotted into the four-man flyweight tournament, but eventually lost a decision to Johnson, who will square off with Joseph Benavidez for the first UFC flyweight championship at UFC 152 in Toronto in September.

This will be “Uncle Creepy’s” first fight since losing to Johnson in early June.

It makes for an interesting match-up with Moraga (10-1), who earned his stripes on the Rage in the Cage circuit in Arizona.

Both are aggressive submission fighters that could provide for fireworks when the fight hits the mat.

    Well said uncanny390. I tried to tell him the same thing but he insists on making himself look like a complete fool. Rube doesn’t realize what a loser he looks like making these ridiculous comments- especially when TKD is nowhere to be found. All it tends to show is what a pathetic person Rube is.
