Ian McCall: That was fun, thought it was mine for sure

source: The Underground

At UFC on FX 2, scoring tabulation for the Ian McCall vs. Demetrious Johnson Featherweight title eliminator was handled with extraordinary incompetence. The event was regulated by the local comission, the Department of Sport and Recreation in New South Wales, Australia, under the supervision of Craig Waller.

Among an athletic commissions many duties are appointing judges, and tabulating their scores. Commissioner Waller failed in this effort, twice. McCall was initially described as the loser by

The fight was initially announced as a split-decision win for Demetrious Johnson. The it was announced that there had been a tabulation error, and that the proper score was a majority-decision victory for Johnson (Indicating one jusge saw the fight a draw).

Then it was announced that the retabulation was in error, too, and that the fight was a majority draw. The UFC had intended to use the two Feeatherweight semi finals matches to test a new rule -  a fourth deciding round in the event of a draw.

Unfortunately, by the time the Australian commission learned second grade math, it was too late.

The UFC made the best of a bad situation, paying both fighters their win bonuses, and awarding fight of the night to each fighter for an extra 50k, and declafring that there would be a rematch.
