With less than 24 hours to go, the UFC Fight Night 56 co-main event between Ian McCall and John Lineker is on the verge of being canceled due to a sudden bout of illness from McCall.

UFC President Dana White announced news of the possible cancelation on Friday night via Twitter.

Although not official yet, the bout — which is supposed to take place tomorrow, and not tonight as White tweeted — will likely be scrapped if McCall is forced to call in sick. MMAWeekly.com will update the situation as more information presents itself.
