Quick Twitt | Dana White Confirms Officials Error | McCall vs. Johnson A Draw, Will Now Rematch


That’s right guys, the commission messed up majorly last night and despite the UFC’s extra efforts into making sure this Flyweight tournament would continue without any delays, they are now forced to do just that and put on a rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall to determine the tournament finalist that will go on to face Joseph Benavidez.

The UFC had set in place a fourth round clause for these tournament fights in case one went to a draw. Unfortunately for both Johnson and McCall the commissioner responsible for tallying the judge’s scores did it wrong and gave Johnson the win, when the bout was in fact ruled a draw after three-rounds.

We have included a photo of the scorecard that was drawn up in error on Page 2 of this entry. Skip on over to page two to get a breakdown of how and where they messed this thing up.

UFC on FX 2 went down last night from Sydney, Australia’s Allphones Arena. In the main event Martin Kampmann took a page out of the book of Tim Boetsch and stole victory from Thiago Alves with a last minute guillotine choke to force Alves to tap and secure victory in the third round.
