Demetrious Johnson's eagerly anticipated rematch against Ian McCall will go ahead as planned after both men made the weight with ease on Thursday.

The first meeting in the Octagon between the two flyweights ended in a controversial draw, but the pair will now face off once more to decide who will face Joseph Benavidez for the first UFC flyweight championship at a future event.

Johnson, who went on an extreme diet last time around to make weight, had no such problems this time - even giving up a pound's advantage to McCall.

There were no other problems at the weigh-in, ahead of Friday's event at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida.
