It took nearly a year and half, but former #1 flyweight, Ian McCall earned his first victory in the UFC, a unanimous decision win over Iliarde Santos at UFC 164. The win over Santos snapped a two-fight losing streak, decision losses to Demetrious Johnson an Joseph Benavidez.

He’s lost two of his last three bouts against the 135-pound elite, a split decision loss to Eddie Wineland and a submission defeat to Michael McDonald. Pickett’s last victory was a split decision win over Mike Easton at UFC on Fuel TV 9.
