<p>Justin Scoggins has been forced out of his flyweight bout this Saturday at UFC 201, according to a <a href="http://mmajunkie.com/2016/07/weight-cutting-issues-force-justin-scoggins-out-of-ufc-201-flyweight-fight-vs-ian-mccall">report by MMAJunkie.</a></p>
<p>Scoggins, who was expected to kick off the main card of UFC 201 this weekend against Ian McCall, confirmed with MMAJunkie that his bout has been cancelled. The 24-year old who hails out of South Carolina ran into issues with his weight cut and decided to call of the fight. The news has not yet been made official by the UFC.</p>
<p>Ian McCall, who had considered retirement from the sport after his last fight, was expecting to make his return to MMA after a layoff that lasted about 18 months. His most recent bout was a decision loss to current #5 ranked bantamweight contender John Lineker in January of 2015. So far, no discussion of a replacement for Scoggins has been announced.</p>
<p>UFC 201 takes place on July 30 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia and will be headlined by a welterweight title fight between Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley. </p>
