Another night of great action is now officially in the books.
Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson (15-2-1) has earned his title shot at the first ever flyweight title, after defeating former Tachi Palace champ, Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall (11-3-1) via unanimous decision at UFC on FX in Sunrise, Florida. It was a back and forth battle continued from a draw back in March, that stretched the full three rounds. Unfortunately for McCall, in the end all three judges favored Johnson’s efforts in the war.

Johnson, a former title contender at bantamweight, will now look to fight Alpha Male stand-out, Joseph Benavidez in the near future to find the first ever 125 pound flyweight champ.
