Reports: Demetrious Johnson vs. Ian McCall 2 Set For TUF Live 1 Finale

The flyweight tournament rematch that should have never been necessary has been reportedly rescheduled for the TUF Live 1 Finale on June 1.

MMA Interviews and MMA Weekly are reporting that Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall will get after it one more time at the finale to determine who advances to face Joseph Benavidez later this year for the vacant UFC flyweight title.

Sources have confirmed to 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.

As you may recall, Johnson and McCall actually fought to a draw at UFC on FX 2 earlier this month. The fight should have went to a fourth “sudden victory” round to determine the winner, however a commission official mistakenly transcribed one of the scores wrong and Demetrious Johnson was announced the winner. The first-ever UFC flyweight championship fight would have likely taken place sometime this summer, however due to the error, it will likely take place sometime in the fall.
