Ian McCall-Demetrious Johnson II Now Set For UFC On FX 3

Instead of taking place at The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale, the rematch between Ian McCall and Demetrious Johnson will now take place at UFC on FX 3, UFC officials announced on Tuesday.

The card is expected to be held on June 8, with voting in the “Hometown Throwdown” deciding where the event will take place.

McCall and Johnson had their UFC flyweight semifinal ruled a draw after an error in scoring was made. The winner will face Joseph Benavidez later this year to decide the first UFC champion in the division.

“On June 8, Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall will rematch and settle one of the year’s most controversial fights,” UFC president Dana White said.

McCall is 11-2-1 in his career and a former champion for Tachi Palace Fights, while Johnson sports a record of 14-2-1 and was a No. 1 contender in the bantamweight division.
