Johnson defeats McCall, earns shot at flyweight title

source: mmajunkie.com
 

Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall had to wait three months to play back their first fight – and rounds 4-5-6 were just as fun as 1-2-3.

It stands to reason the two flyweights could go another three rounds and still not have things truly settled. But on Friday, it was Johnson who finally emerged as the other half of the UFC's first 125-pound title fight. Johnson took a unanimous decision with scores of 29-28, 30-27 and 29-28.

The flyweight fight took place at UFC on FX 3 at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. The bout served as the main event, which was broadcast on FX following a preliminary card that aired on Facebook and FUEL TV. The fight was the first flyweight main event in UFC history.

I thought both fights were given the correct decision(eventually) , a tie the first fight and a decision for DJ the second. People keep re-hashing the first fight , but I believe it was a tie after the 3rd round , DJ was hardly finnished and a 4th would have been a treat to watch Both top fighters who match extremely well , a shame people calling DJ a point fighter , maybe he was fighting the top ranked flyweight who isn't a bad fighter him self, not joe blow from mega fights 3 in Cletus's back yard.

does octagon control and aggression even mean anything anymore?And who's the retard who gave the second round to Johnson?I'd even give R3 to UC based on octagon control and aggression and pushing forwared instead of running.

Demitrius "Ben" Johnson.I know he's fast and all but it really bothers me when one fighter is literally running after another fighter to keep the fight going. He won 2 rounds to 1 (30-27????) but it seemed like McCall was constantly moving forward with MM constantly retreating. Yeah yeah, great strategy but what if McCall just stood there? Am I crazy?
