Ian McCall has lived a hard life. And it seems lately it's just been getting harder.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Flyweight contender was arrested this past Tuesday (Aug. 14, 2012) in Irvine, California, according to a report from Stu News Laguna, which was confirmed by our friends at MMAFighting.com.

The report states that McCall "was arrested without incident for two Harbor Court warrants for possession of narcotic paraphernalia, possession of prescription meds without a valid prescription, and driving on a suspended license." MMA Fighting uncovers more:

According to McCall's manager, Jason House, McCall was charged with driving on a suspended license in June, which was a probation violation. He was supposed to appear in court this month, however, he did not due to a miscommunication. He was arrested after the DEA agents recognized his car.

According to Captain Jason Kravetz of the LBPD, McCall was transferred to the Orange County Central Men's Jail and will be held there for 30 days until Sept. 13 for his court hearing. He is expected to be released from jail then. According to occourts.org, McCall has only been charged with driving on a suspended license.

McCall was scheduled to fight John Moraga at UFC on Fox 4 just two weeks ago but was forced to pull out due to injury. Little did we know there's been so much more going on in his life.

All this after losing to Demetrious Johnson in their highly anticipated rematch this past June in the main event of UFC on FX 3. No word from anyone at UFC regarding how this may or may not affect McCall's future with the promotion.
