Condescending UFC Flyweight with dumb mustache thinks Rousey renown is “cute”

Chill bro Ian McCallFlyweight Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall had a lot to say about the popularity of women’s MMA and all the buzz around Ronda Rousey. McCall fancies himself a fighter with division-making star quality, despite awful facial hair, three losses in his last five fights, and an embarrassing performance in his most recent fight against John Lineker. When confronted with questions about someone with actual, bona fide star quality and whether the flyweights will ever get similar attention, he had these eloquent insights to share:

“She’s that much better than everybody else. Are we ever going to get the attention? I’m the only person that can do it and I’m kind of unreliable at this point. Who knows? It’s going to take someone like myself to really stand out and make us different and give us the star power. Women’s MMA is exploding…You see all these comparisons to her fighting men…I’m sorry, it’s not going to happen. I come from wrestling and before there was a big female scene in wrestling they [the women] would wrestle men. And, it’s not going to happen. A good man will not lose to Ronda Rousey. I can put a judo gi on, you’re an Olympian. You’re not throwing me. It’s not going to happen. I will throw you on your head, pretty simple. And you weigh more than me.

“I can’t compartmentalize it or whatever. It doesn’t make sense to me. I know it’s all talk, being compared to [Mike] Tyson. She’s dangerous, she’s good, I get it. It’s just silly and I could rant about it awhile but I’m not going to. Ronda is definitely not the best pound for pound fighter in the world. She’s the best woman on the planet. That’s cute. Cool. We’re doing men things. I get it, you’re good and all, but comparing her to Jon [Jones] or Jose [Aldo] or Demetrious [Johnson] or Cain [Velasquez]… come on… any of the champions… It’s a different world. It just frustrates me.”

How awful for Ian McCall that the silly women are detracting from the menfolk. Because, as we all know, the pound for pound rankings mean that someone like heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez could take on flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and they would be on equal footing.* Hence, including Rousey is patently absurd.

But it’s “cute” when women do “men things” well. How generous of McCall to throw an undefeated, completely dominant champion that bone. Maybe someday he’ll reach her level.

Ian McCall is so cool


*That’s not at all what the pound for pound rankings mean; McCall is being a hypocrite.
