Update - Ian McCall Out, Ulysses Gomez NOT In Against John Moraga At UFC On Fox 4

via www.n3rdgazm.com

Just a few days after having a UFC on Fox 4 bout announced by the UFC, Ian McCall has already withdrawn from the fight. He was scheduled to face off with the debuting John Moraga at the Los Angeles event, but apparently told the UFC that he couldn't compete. He said as much on The Underground last night. Moraga will still fight on the card though, and MMA Diehards reports that it will be against another debuting fighter:

MMADiehards.com has learned from sources close to the event that Ian "Uncle Creepy" McCall has withdrawn from his match with UFC newcomer John Moraga. Ulysses "Useless" Gomez will make his own Octagon debut against Moraga instead.

Gomez (9-2) is a former Tachi Palace Fights flyweight and bantamweight champion and has also competed in a Bellator bantamweight tournament. He won his quarter-final bout, but was forced out of the tourney with a staph infection. His management had been campaigning for a UFC debut against top flyweight Jussier da Silva at UFC 153, but instead he'll step in on short notice closer to home on August 4th.

UPDATE at 4:25pm ET - According to Gomez himself, he has not signed with the UFC as of yet. Moraga is still without an opponent.
