When the third round expired in Demetrious Johnson’s original meeting with fellow UFC flyweight Ian McCall this past March it seemed as though they were poised to make history with the first “sudden victory” period in the organization’s history. In the previous fifteen minutes the two had battled back-and-forth in an evenly matched affair.

Unfortunately, the two talented 125ers went down in the record books for a much more ominous reason after the judges’ erroneously scored the bout in Johnson’s favor only to realize after the show they’d miscalculated the numbers, preventing a Draw and the additional round.

However, instead of dwelling on having to face McCall in a rematch (as he will tomorrow night at UFC on FX 3), “Mighty Mouse” appears focused on the benefits of another opportunity to prove himself in front of the world.

“I told my coaches the other day that I’m glad I get to rematch him because I feel sharper,” said Johnson in an interview with the UFC’s website. “I feel like I’ve gained a lot more this time around in training camp. My body is not banged up, and I just feel better.”

“I feel like if I had gotten the nod, and went on to fight Joseph, I would have been like `Oh, my weight cut was good because I beat Ian McCall. I don’t need to work on very much; just stay on the same steady track.’ But at some point, I took a lot of steps backward to fix my game, and my mindset, and now I feel good,” he concluded.

McCall Gives His Thoughts on Rematch with Johnson

The winner of Johnson-McCall will advance to face Joseph Benavidez for the right to be crowned the first flyweight champion in UFC history. Fans can catch their clash in the main event of Friday evening’s card with things starting up at 9:00 PM EST on FX. Prelims will air on Facebook beginning at 5:00 PM EST with Fuel TV taking over an hour later.
