Twitter War Erupts Between Ian McCall & Ali Bagautinov Following McCall’s Withdrawal Against John Lineker

While Ian McCall and John Lineker seem to be over McCall pulling out of their match on Saturday due to a blood infection, suspended flyweight Ali Bagautinov apparently has beef with both over the incident.

lthough Ian McCall and John Lineker jousted following the cancellation of their recent bout, suspended UFC flyweight Ali Bagautinov has inserted himself into the conversation.

Lineker (5-2 UFC) and McCall (2-2-1 UFC) were slated to co-headline UFC Fight Night 56 event in Brazil. The first incident took place when Lineker needed a second attempt to make weight and almost missed weight for the fourth time in his UFC career. In the end, his problems on the scales paled in comparison to McCall withdrawing because of a blood infection.

From there, Bagautinov took to the social network to call out both fighters.

The Dagestani-borh fighter is currently serving a year-long suspension after failing a drug test due to erythropoietin (EPO) after he lost to Demetrious Johnson. The fact that a suspended fighter was commenting on him and Lineker received an immediate response from ‘Uncle Creepy.’
