It had been initially report that the Ian McCall vs. Demetrious Johnson flyweight tournament rematch would take place at the TUF Live Finale on June 1st, but that will not be the case. Instead, the bout will take place on the newly-announced UFC on FX 3 card a week later on June 8th. As usual, UFC.com has the info you need to know:
"On June 8, Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall will rematch and settle one of the year's most controversial fights," said UFC president Dana White today. Johnson and McCall put on a Fight of the Night-winning performance at UFC on FX earlier this month in Sydney in the UFC's first-ever flyweight bout.
The bout was one of two scheduled as a mini-tournament to determine the contenders for the UFC's first-ever flyweight championship. Although Johnson was announced as the winner, it was revealed that the judges' scores were mistabulated and the bout was in fact a draw.
This event doesn't have a location set yet, but that will be determined by a contest the UFC is holding called the Harley Davidson Hometown Throwdown.
There was some confusion over how the UFC on FX cards would play out when Zuffa recently announced that Gray Maynard vs. Clay Guida would main event an FX event on June 22nd. So, just to get it straight - flyweight rematch means FX 3, Gray/Guida means FX 4. Got it? Good.
