Brad Pickett sets his sights on Ian McCall, says there is unfinished business

This past weekend at UFC Fight Night 37, Brad Pickett made a successful UFC Flyweight debut by defeating Neil Seery by decision. The bout was extremely entertaining and posed a new Flyweight contender in Pickett.

While Dana White said that Pickett could possibly get a title fight against Demetrious Johnson, Brad still has his eyes set on his original Fight Night 37 opponent, Ian McCall:

McCall was forced out of the bout with Pickett due to yet another injury. Unfortunately for McCall, this was his second injury in a row that forced him out of a scheduled fight. His UFC on FOX 9 bout against Scott Jorgensen was scrapped after he broke his hand. Two fights prior, he was set to face John Moraga at UFC on FOX 4, but was injured prior to that bout as well.

McCall responded to Pickett:

If Pickett feels that he is not ready to rematch UFC Flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson, who he previously defeated back in the WEC, he will likely get his wish and fight McCall this summer.

The only other option for Demetrious at this point is Ali Bagautinov, but he is very unknown to the casual fan. There is no doubt that a Pickett/Johnson fight would be much bigger than the Bagautinov fight, but we will have to see how this plays out.
