Dana White said they'd rematch in April, but scheduling can be a pain and it looks like they'll have to wait until June. Flyweights Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall, who went to a controversial draw at UFC on FX 2, will meet again on June 1st at the Ultimate Fighter Live Finale to see who advances to the flyweight tournament finals and faces Joseph Benavidez.. MMAInterviews.tv has the news:

According to sources close to the fighters, the UFC is hoping to feature the Flyweight Tournament rematch between Ian McCall and Demetrious Johnson at the Finale of "The Ultimate Fighter 15″ taking place June 1st in Las Vegas.

The first bout was initially given to Johnson by split decision, but the scorecards were added up wrong and it turned out to be a draw. It was the first time in UFC history that a bout was scheduled to go to a fourth round if there was a draw, but the scorecard error ruined that. Nevertheless, the fighters were given their win bonuses and each received a $50,000 check for fight of the night. I doubt many will complain about them tangling again though, even if we do have to wait 10 weeks for it.
