Default Ian McCall vs. Demetrious Johnson Rematch Booked for UFC on FX 3

Mar 20, 2012 - The UFC officially announced Tuesday the anticipated rematch between flyweights Ian McCall and Demetrious Johnson. The two remaining semifinalist in the first-ever UFC flyweight tournament will face one another at UFC on FX 3 on June 8th. No date or venue has been set for the event, however, fans will decide those details as part of the Hometown Throwdown contest.

Just like their first meeting, the rematch between McCall and Johnson will also have a sudden-death fourth round in the event of a draw after the first three rounds.
McCall and Johnson first fought at UFC on FX 2 in Sydney, Australia. In a tightly-contested contest, Johnson was initially declared to be the winner via majority decision. However, at the post-fight press conference it was announced by UFC President Dana White the score cards totals were incorrectly added.

Craig Waller, Executive Director of the Combat Sports Authority of New South Wales, added one round on one card as 10-9 rather than the actual 10-8. As a result, a fight that should've been a draw - and gone to a sudden-death fourth round - was declared a majority draw for Johnson.
The winner of McCall vs. Johnson will face the finalist from the other side of the tournament bracket, Joseph Benavidez. The Team Alpha Male flyweight defeated Yasuhiro Uru••••ani [<--- hehe, that's always funny to me ] the same evening to advance to the finals in the tournament.

The UFC also announced for this card that Dustin Pague, season 14 contestant of 'The Ultimate Fighter', would face Jared Papazian in a bantamweight contest. Pague enters this bout having lost his UFC debut to John Albert via TKO at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale in December of 2011. Papazian also enters this bout on a loss, having dropped a majority decision to Mike Easton at UFC on FX 1 this past January.
