One fight that didn’t make it to the card was the planned UFC 201 pay-per-view opener, a flyweight fight between Justin Scoggins and Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall. Scoggins had to withdraw from the bout on Thursday when his weight cutting procedure went sideways. McCall still weighed in on Friday at 126 pounds.
