Flyweight fighter Ian McCall has pulled out of his scheduled bout against Scott Jorgensen due to an undisclosed injury. The two were originally set to face off on December 14 at UFC on Fox 9.

The report comes from MMAJunkie.com.

This incident is very unfortunate for McCall, as he has lost two out of his last three fights in the UFC. He earned a much needed victory over Iliarde Santos in his most recent bout, but if he wants to be considered for a title shot, he would definitely need to rack up some more wins under his belt, and this latest injury is only going to delay him from doing that.

As for Scott Jorgensen, he is hoping to get a replacement opponent come December 14. The 31 year old most recently lost to Urijah Faber in the fourth round via rear naked choke, and is very eager to get back into the cage.

This fight against McCall was supposed to be his flyweight debut. The UFC has yet to find him a replacement opponent.
