“It could be worse. I could have an office job and want to kill myself. It could be a lot worse,” McCall said. “This job is killing us. Realistically, this job is ruining the one vehicle we have — our bodies and our brains. It’s killing me. It’s killing all of us, but I signed up for it. Just like all these football players. They want to make all these cheesy rules — you can’t hit guys, they can’t hit each other as hard. You signed up for this.
“John Lineker could kill me and I have no problem with that. I could kill him and I have no f–king problem with that either. It’s part of the sport. All of the suffering we put in, the training and everywhere else at home, I don’t get to see my kid as much, the diet, I have to eat vegan food all week and it sucks. It’s not fun. But I do what I love and I get underpaid for it, but I still get paid. It could be worse. I could have a 9 to 5.
“I know we don’t get credit and we don’t get the love, but this is a No. 1 contender’s fight. This is kind of a big deal. This is No. 3 versus No. 4 and to get the least amount of respect we’re getting. Shockingly, we’re co-main event now ’cause someone had to get hurt. It’s a slap in the face,” McCall told FOX Sports. “It’s just me complaining and I’ve got to shut up and do my job.”
