Say what you will about the UFC Flyweight Championship and its inaugural title fight on Saturday, but in my opinion, Demetrious Johnson should not be a part of it.
When Johnson and McCall met in March, the bout structure was clear: Three rounds of action, and if the fight is a draw at that point, the competitors will immediately square off for a fourth round.
Due to a commission error, the fight was awarded to Johnson, despite the judges turning in scores that determined the three rounds to be even. By the time that the error was addressed, the fighters had cooled down and made their way to the post-fight press conference.
Round three of the initial meeting saw Uncle Creepy put Mighty Mouse in a terrible spot, catching him in a back mount and raining down bombs for much of the round. The fight could have been stopped due to the massive damage Johnson was taking. If round four had occurred, Mighty Mouse would have been slower and zapped of energy, making him an easier target for McCall.
Johnson won the rematch, but that doesn't negate the fact that a rematch never should have been in the cards to begin with if the bout had gone on as planned.
