Ian McCall on Demetrious Johnson: “I can prove that I can beat him next time”

The number one ranked flyweight in the world, Ian McCall explains his thoughts on his recent controversial majority draw vs. Demetrious Johnson at UFC on FX 2 in Sydney, Australia, explaining he did enough to win and will be happy to do it again. A rematch will determine who fights Joseph Benavidez for the new UFC featherweight title, and the number one spot in the flyweight rankings.

McCall, speaking via MMAWeekly, said:

“He (Dana White) said hey they screwed up, this is a draw. This is really bad for the sport, it’s bad for this, bad for that. And I was like people make mistakes. Stuff happens. I’m not going to sit and get mad at the commission people. I mean it sucks, certain things should have happened that didn’t, but I’m just happy to be here. I’m just happy to be able to do this.”

“I can prove that I can beat him next time. I’m not sure when that’s going to be, hopefully soon. There’s no date, I know he’s looking to get married and I think that’s the big hang up. It’ll get done soon I’m sure.”
