On January 26, at UFC 233, the wait will finally be over as TJ Dillashaw will make the move down to 125 pounds and face Henry Cejudo for the UFC flyweight championship.
Should Dillashaw reign supreme in this bout, he will make UFC history as being one of few fighters to win championships in two different UFC weight divisions concurrently.
Another result of Dillashaw’s win could see the tragic end to the UFC flyweight division altogether.
At the same time, Cejudo is not sure that’s how things will turn out.
He understands the weight cut down to 125 pounds for TJ Dillashaw will be excruciating, and believes he has a skill set unlike anybody Dillashaw has ever fought before.
“The fight is a super fight to a lot of people. I am going to smash this guy. I am going to smash this guy,” said Cejudo on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “Him coming down an additional ten pounds, I gave him that option and he wants to come down. My only thing is, when I beat him, because I know I will beat him, I’ll put my purse on it. My whole thing is when I beat him they are going to hold the whole bantamweight division up again cause he will get his rematch but it will be at 135-pounds.”
A rematch will be almost a given if Cejudo defeats Dillashaw, as Cejudo explained to Helwani that it is in his contract that he will get his chance to compete for the UFC bantamweight championship, if he’s able to triumph over Dillashaw.
However, should Cejudo lose, things will not look so bright, as a matter fact, Cejudo went so far to imply that could wind up being a free agent if he were fall to TJ Dillashaw.
Regardless of what the case may be, it is of the utmost importance Henry Cejudo comes out victorious against TJ Dillashaw at UFC 233, which he is very determined to do so.
“On January 26, I will cut the head off the snake forever and ever.”
Who do you think will win the UFC flyweight championship at UFC 233 between Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw?
