Ian McCall vs. Demetrious Johnson Round 4 Scheduled For June’s TUF Finale


A winner for this bout should have been selected during the UFC on FX 2 fight card that just passed us a few weeks ago.

However, the MMA gods didn’t see it that way and due to a scoring error, the original bout that was initially scored for Demetrious Johnson, was eventually ruled a draw and Ian McCall now gets a shot at redemption with this rematch to determine the UFC’s flyweight tournament finalist.

In the initial matchup the fighters signed specialized contracts that called for a fourth-round tie breaker in the event that the bout ended up as a draw, but due to the scoring error made at ringside they never got to fulfill this once in a lifetime opportunity to go to a “sudden death” UFC overtime round.

According to reports, the two flyweights are now booked for that fourth round (and possibly three more if they draw after three again) and they will square off in June on “The Ultimate Fighter Live on FX” finale.

The winner will face tourny finalist Joseph Benavidez for a chance to be the first ever UFC flyweight champion.

“The Ultimate Fighter Live on FX” Finale is set to take place on June 1.

  1. …so its a one round fight?

  2. bart says:

    Thats really stupid because Uncle Creepy is a slow starter and he came back in the last two rounds. So if they do one round he wont have the chance to get into his groove….NOT FAIR!

  3. Mat says:

    Nah, I think the writer just worded it in an odd way.

  4. Gouldx87 says:

    It’s a 3 round fight people. Calm down. They’re saying it might go 3 again if they draw again. Someone’s probably getting finished.
