Last time Ian McCall and John Lineker were supposed to fight, McCall had to withdraw last minute due to an illness. That fight was scheduled for earlier this month in Brazil.
The cancellation disappointed many fans as this was the scheduled co-main event of the evening. Much to their delight however, the bout was rescheduled for UFC 183.
McCall is the number three ranked flyweight fighter, and with a win over Lineker, he could push for another shot at current flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.
UFC 183 is set to take place January 31 in Las Vegas, a card which is already stacked with the main event being Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva.
