“We’re totally legal; we cannot be shut down,” McCall said. “The feds can’t come in and f-ck with us. The state, we’re going to be paying them a lot of taxes. And we’re going to be very by the book because we’re going to be watched by the government.”

In regards to his future inside the Octagon, McCall said:

“Our sport’s in ruin, financially,” he said. “Our sport sucks. It’s not what it used to be. It’s not what it was five years ago. It’s not even what it is when I first got to the UFC. It’s horrible, as far as finances. So I’ve got to get another job, just like many other fighters. This one could take me away from MMA.”
