Neil Seery’s scheduled bout at UFC Belfast with Ian McCall is off. The American fell ill this morning and was forced off the card because of it. Seery came in on weight at 126 lbs. The news was reported first by MMA Junkie’s Mike Bohn.

Fighting out of Team Ryano in Dublin this was scheduled to be Seery’s seventh, and last, UFC fight having gone 3-3 previously. The Dubliner has picked up wins over Jon Delos Reyes, Chris Beal and Phil Harris. He planned to retire, win or lose, after the bout.
