UFC on FX 3: Can Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall Recreate the Magic?
While it's doubtful that Mighty Mouse and Uncle Creepy can recreate the controversy of their first fight, fans are hopeful that Ultimate Fighter semi-finalists Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall can put together the same level of thrilling entertainment that they did in their March confrontation.
Is it a pipe dream?
I'm not suggesting that these caged warriors won't put on an entertaining fight. If anything, I expect them to try and outdo their previous performance. But, this would not be the first time that matchmakers have tried to have lightning strike twice.
Rematches of exciting fights don't always turn out smelling like roses. Do you remember Griffin vs Bonnar II? Or Shamrock vs Severn II?
The original battle between Johnson and McCall made history. As the first flyweight battle in UFC history, both men knew that they were part of something magical. With intensity and pugnacity, the 125 pound fighters gave us a 15 minute battle that nearly saw McCall take home the victory and move one step closer to the inaugural UFC Flyweight Championship.
Should we be skeptical about this fight? Probably not. McCall and Johnson are two fighters with incredible heart and the desire to become champions. When they square off on Friday night, make sure you are tuned in because we should expect nothing less than fireworks.
UFC on FX 3 takes place on Friday, June 8. The main card airs on FX and features four battles that will be contested at 170 pounds or lower. An eight-fight preliminary card will air on Fuel TV.
