Henry Cejudo explains why Merab Dvalishvili would be an “easy money” fight

Former UFC bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo explained why Merab Dvalishvili would be an “easy money” fight for him.

Cejudo returns to the Octagon at UFC 288 in May when he takes on current UFC bantamweight champ Aljamain Sterling for the title. Of course, Dvalishvili is Sterling’s teammate and he recently beat Petr Yan at UFC Las Vegas to emerge as one of the division’s top contenders. At this point in time, Sterling and Dvalishvili have said they do not want to fight each other. But in the event that Sterling is defeated by Cejudo, then it’s possible we could see Dvalishvili fight for the belt, only against Cejudo instead.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Cejudo spoke about a potential fight against Dvalishvili. As far as Cejudo is concerned, he’s going to beat Sterling, and he expects to beat Dvalishvili, too.

“For my fight with Sterling, I have a feeling he’s gonna fight the way he fought Pedro Munhoz. I’m expecting that. Real high pace, real volume, a lot of movement, a lot of lateral stuff, but he could also come in and just wing. These guys are the same fighters all the time. Aljamain, he just flows with his fighting, he’s a freestyler. This guy (Dvalishvili), you know he’s gonna press, you know he’s gonna do all this to shoot. This is why a guy like Merab would be easy money. I’d hurt that dude. I’d let him in on my legs, make him carry my weight, and then take him down,” Cejudo said (via MMAjunkie.com).

Cejudo has his work cut out for him against Sterling given he is coming off of a long layoff. But in the event that he does beat the champ, it will be interesting to see him fight Dvalishvili as well.

Do you agree with Henry Cejudo that he would defeat Merab Dvalishvili in the Octagon?
