UFC flyweights Ian McCall (11-2-1) and Demetrious Johnson (14-2-1) will get their rematch against one another on June 8 at “UFC on FX 3” in a location still to be determined.
UFC President Dana White confirmed the match-up via UFC.com today:
“On June 8, Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall will rematch and settle one of the year’s most controversial fights.”
The two 125-pounders first did battle at “UFC on FX 2” earlier this month in Sydney, Australia, in the semifinal round of the UFC’s very first flyweight championship tournament.
The bout ended with Johnson being declared the winner via majority decision, but it was later announced the judges’ scores were calculated wrong and the bout was in fact a draw.
The winner of the June 8 bout between McCall and Johnson will move on to fight Joseph Benavidez (16-2) for the inaugural UFC flyweight championship title.
A bantamweight match-up between Dustin Pague and Jared Papazian has also been confirmed for the “UFC on FX 3” card. Refer to ProMMAnow.com’s Upcoming MMA Events page for the full fight card line-up as more bouts are announced.
