The first fight of the tournament took place on FX 2 between the former Tachi Palace flyweight champion, Ian McCall and the former UFC bantamweight title challenger, Demetrious Johnson.
These two had a back and forth fight which was absolutely fantastic, earning fight of the night honors.
Throughout the fight, Johnson rocked McCall, but McCall came closest to finishing in the third round.
When the scorecards were read, Johnson was announced as the winner by majority decision, although it was actually a split decision.
Then it got even more confusing, when Dana White announced at the post-fight press conference that the scorecards were tallied incorrectly and that it should have been a draw after three rounds. This should have meant a fourth "sudden victory" round.
A rematch was scheduled for McCall and Johnson, and they would have to fight again.
