Throwdown Redux

When Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall squared off in the Ultimate Fighting Championship octagon in Australia two months ago, it was UFC's first fight in its new flyweight division. After a somewhat controversial ending in which Johnson was initially declared the winner, only to later find out there had been a judging error and the match was actually a draw, a rematch was signed. And when the Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown comes to South Florida on June 8, that rematch will be the main event, with the winner going on to face Joseph Benavidez at a later date to determine the first UFC Flyweight Champion. Two months is a long time to wait for a decision, and both Johnson and McCall are ready to settle things once and for all.
