Darrell Montague Likes to Defend Belt from New Challengers
Sorry fans! But no Ulysses Gomez vs Jussier da Silva fight is in the horizon. However, you can expect a Darrell Montague vs Ian McCall title defense bout in the works.
It seems that MMA fans will not see a Ulysses Gomez vs Jussier da Silva bout in the coming days, as Darrell Montague took the championship belt from Gomez last Friday at TPF 8. After his defeat, former flyweight champion – Ulysses Gomez – would like a rematch against Montague. However, the current champ sees no point of putting Gomez in the front line.
“No disrespect to Ulysses, but there’s other challengers that deserve a shot at the belt more than he does. The judges saw it just like I did – all five rounds going to me. So yeah, I’d like to have new challengers.”
And no challenger appears more qualified as of now than Ian McCall. Ian McCall just recently survived Jussier da Silva’s grappling, highly touting the Brazilian’s first loss. A Darrell Montague vs Ian McCall fights sounds good alternative, right? And now that Darrell Montague got the flyweight belt, he would like to be the first man for UFC to tap, in case the promotion is serious about bringing flyweight fighters in.
