Ian McCall vs. Demetrious Johnson 2 Scheduled for TUF Live Finale June 1

Posted on by Damon Martin


Due to a scoring error, Ian McCall and Demetrious Johnson didn’t get to have a round four at their fight in Australia at UFC on FX 2, so they’ll do it all over again in June.

Sources have confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that McCall and Johnson will meet for a second time at The Ultimate Fighter Live finale on June 1 in Las Vegas. The date for the bout was first reported by MMAInterviews.TV.

McCall and Johnson had a Fight of the Night during their bout at UFC on FX 2 just a few weeks back, where Johnson was initially declared the winner.

Unfortunately, due to an error committed by the athletic commission in Australia, the scores were incorrectly totaled and the fight should have been declared a draw.

The UFC included a provision for a fourth round for instances just like this, so if the fight was a draw, the two fighters could battle in another “sudden victory” round to declare the winner.

Because of the scoring error, however, the fourth round never happened and now McCall and Johnson will do it all over again.

The fight will be featured on The Ultimate Fighter Live finale airing on FX on Friday, June 1, where the next champion from the show will also be crowned.

The winner of the McCall/Johnson rematch will then go on to face Joseph Benavidez to crown the first ever UFC flyweight champion.

    Sucks that they had a contingency plan in place and it wasn’t put to use because someone failed to pay attention to detail.

    This is why you should trust computers to do your math, or at least get some Asian kids to verify calculations.

    I know, who in the **** made an error calculating 3 Rounds of figthing.

    All the judge had to do was …
    10 – 9
    9 – 10
    9 – 9
    ——-
    28 – 28 = DRAW!

    WOW, I must be incredibly smart or the judge is INCREDIBLY ******* STUPID!

    Explain to me how any judge can make a calculating error?!? How can someone not know how to add 3 numbers they WROTE DOWN themselves?!
