It was revealed at the UFC on FX 2 post-fight press conference that the Ian McCall vs. Demetrious Johnson flyweight tournament bout was actually scored a majority draw, but announced incorrectly.
BE has the video from that announcement featuring a very upset Dana White, Australia Department of Sport and Recreation head Craig Waller, Johnson and McCall with their reactions.
Johnson and McCall said they had heard backstage about the issue, while their possible future opponent Joseph Benavidez was shocked to hear the news right there and said, “I thought it was a draw. It was a great, close fight.”
“Controversy seems to be stuck to us like glue these days, so what are you gonna do,” White said. During his apology, Waller mentioned the two would perhaps rematch in April but White said nothing was figured out yet.
“I like him. We have fun beating each other up, so it’s going to be a good time,” a jovial McCall said. “I can do this again, make more money…I’m all in.”
