We finally have a winner between Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall, and the mouse proved mighty.
Johnson, known as "Mighty Mouse," won by unanimous decision over McCall in the rematch of their first UFC flyweight tournament semifinal bout Friday night at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla.
Johnson and McCall previously fought on March 3 in Syndey, Australia on another UFC on FOX event as part of the flyweight tournament. Rules stated that in the event of a draw, there should have been a fourth "overtime" round in their fight, but since that didn't happen, Johnson and McCall were forced to face each other again.
With his win, Johnson will face Joseph Benavidez to become the first ever UFC flyweight champion. Benavidez advanced to the tournament final with a win over Yasuhiro ********** on the same UFC on FX card as the first Johnson-McCall fight.
Rising welterweight Erick Silva defeated noted wrestler Charlie Brenneman in the co-main event of the evening. Silva (14-2 with one no-contest) got Brenneman (15-4) into a rear naked choke and forced him to submitt 4:33 into the first round.
Veteran welterweight Mike Pyle defeated Josh Neer in the second bout of the main card. Pyle (23-8-1) dropped Neer (33-11-1) to the canvas with a big right hand just with just four second left in the first round.
The first bout of the main card was a bloody battle of bantamweights. In the end, Eddie Wineland (19-8-1), sporting a uge gash above his left eye, knocked out a cut-up Scott Jorgensen (13-6) at 4:10 of the second round. The win was Wineland's first in the UFC after losses in his previous two attempts.
