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.
