Video interview with Ian McCall above
Some fighters have the “it” factor when it comes to the entire package in modern MMA. Between the look, charm, and outspoken personality, these fighters need to stand apart from the pack. If that’s not enough to unload, they also will certainly need to carry the skillset to back up everything previously mentioned.
Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall carried all these characteristics before Conor McGregor was carrying on at pressers about “red panty night.” With a stand-alone gentleman’s curled mustache, a plethora of tattoos covering his body and a resume of who’s-who in his division, “Uncle Creepy embodies the “it” factor. Facing the likes of Dominick Cruz in only his ninth professional fight during the WEC days, McCall went on to fight for the first flyweight main event in UFC history when he took on Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson at UFC on FX 3.
With such an extensive resume and longevity under his belt, it’s no wonder McCall “has been smoking cannabis since I was nine years old,” he shamelessly admits. While not advocating such behavior for underage recreational use, McCall is certain about the healing capabilities of cannabis within the youth, conceding that cannabis “healed my daughter of rheumatoid arthritis,” he says.
McCall’s newest adventure includes rehabilitating and offering fighters an alternative form of “plant therapy,” he says. With studies being done on the therapeutic relief of natural (earth made) medicines such as psilocybin, Ayuaschsa on top of the medical cannabis business already skyrocketing; McCall has been in talks with individuals in within the UFC as well as doctors at John Hopkins to make his “plant therapy” oasis a closer reality opposed to a dream.
“How are we going to turn these little moments of bliss into learning experiences?” McCall rhetorically asks. Blueprinting the approach, he intends on building from with his new 501(c) nonprofit plan!
Tune in above as Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall joins MyMMArijuanaChronicles to talk about his 501(c) non-profit plans, how cannabis has played such an important role in his life, overviews of conversations he’s had with a plethora of doctors on the topic of natural plant therapy and so much more!
