On Tuesday, the UFC announced the flyweight affair has been rebooked for UFC 183.

The January 31 event goes down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 125-pounders were initially slated to meet at UFC Fight Night 56. However, after both making weight at Friday’s weigh-ins, the UFC’s medical staff pulled McCall from the bout later that night after his body didn’t recover from the weight cut.

McCall will be riding a two-fight winning streak into the tango. “Uncle Creepy” was last seen in July posting a unanimous decision victory over Brad Pickett.

Lineker has won five of his last six contests. The up-and-coming 24-year-old TKO’d Alptekin Ozkilic in his most recent outing.

Here is the show’s updated lineup:

Ildemar Alcantara vs. Richardson Moreira

Diego Brandao vs. Jimy Hettes

Andy Enz vs. Thiago Santos

John Lineker vs. Ian McCall

Miesha Tate vs. Sara McMann

Thales Leites vs. Tim Boetsch

Thiago Alves vs. Jordan Mein

Kelvin Gastelum vs. Tyron Woodley

Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva
