Ian McCall vs. John Lineker back on for UFC 183 on Jan. 31 in Las Vegas

Jason da Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight contender Ian McCall is getting another chance to compete against John Lineker, this time at the UFC 183: "Silva vs. Diaz" pay-per-view (PPV) event on Jan. 31, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The winner is likely to be next in line for a 125-pound title shot.

"Uncle Creepy" was originally set to crack "Hands of Stone" at the UFC Fight Night 56: "Shogun vs. St. Preux" mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1 earlier this month in Uberlandia, Brazil; however, McCall fell ill and was forced to withdraw.

Not that the time away has put a damper on any of their trash talk.

UFC 183 will be headlined by the 185-pound "super fight" between Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz. Elsewhere on the card, Thiago Alves gets crackin' against Jordan Mein in welterweight action, while Andy Enz and Thiago Santos hook 'em up at middleweight.
