Demetrious Johnson vs. Ian McCall Agree to “Sudden Death” Round

Demetrious JohnsonDemetrious Johnson and Ian McCall have agreed to having a “sudden death” round in their upcoming UFC on FX 2 bout. The groundbreaking move would prevent any possibility of a draw in their bout, which will serve as the opening round of the flyweight tournament. Johnson announced the move while on TapouT radio.

While there is no word on whether this could be a standard move for future fights, and Johnson was unsure if Joseph Benavidez vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani had the same agreement, it could be a large shift in future fight-making policy.

UFC on FX 2 takes place March 3 and is headlined by a bout between Thiago Alves vs. Martin Kampmann. The event takes place in Sydney, Australia and will be broadcast on FX.
