Let's try this again.

A few months after the UFC tried to book Brad Pickett vs. Ian McCall in London, the organization is working towards placing the flyweight fight on the upcoming UFC Dublin card later this summer, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. The promotion has yet to officially announce the fight.

McCall (12-4-1) pulled out of the fight in February, which led to a war of words via Twitter between the two. Pickett (24-8) would go on to beat Neil Seery in his flyweight debut on the March 8 card in London.

"Uncle Creepy" hasn't fought since UFC 163 last August, when he defeated Iliarde Santos to pick up his first win inside the Octagon.

The UFC's first event in Ireland in over four years will take place at The O2 in Dublin on July 19. The promotion has yet to announce a main event.
