Ian McCall says personal problems, probable divorce led to 'tough training camp' for UFC 156

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

"This training camp, it's been a tough one. Been going through a lot on a personal note. It'll all unfold sooner or later. At least I have the gym, that's my happy place at the moment. As much drama as I'm dealing with outside, at least I'm focused here. I'm in super-good shape, 10 times lighter than I was last camp. My manorexia is kicking in well. I don't know if it's my personal problems that's not making me eat as much or what, but at least my weight's down and my energy's up. It's all home stuff. I'm separated, probably getting divorced. Stuff like that."

This Saturday night (Feb. 2, 2013) at the UFC 156 pay-per-view (PPV) event from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, two of the flyweight division's best fighters will step inside the Octagon, as Ian McCall goes to battle against Joseph Benavidez. Both competitors are coming off losses to current 125-pound champion Demetrious Johnson, but could make a solid case for another crack at the crown with a big performance this weekend in "Sin City." But will "Uncle Creepy" (via MMA Sucka) be able to overcome the personal problems that have haunted him during training camp? We'll find out soon enough.
