Henry Cejudo finishes TJ Dillashaw in 32 seconds

UFC Rankings Update: Henry Cejudo into top-five in pound-for-pound

The UFC held their first show of 2019 on Saturday, and it was also the first of the ESPN-era.

In the main event, Henry Cejudo was taking on T.J. Dillashaw, in which Dillashaw was looking to become the next champ-champ. Well, Cejudo once again shocked the world as he defeated Dillashaw in 32 seconds to score a TKO win and defend his title. That win pushed Cejudo into the top-five of the pound-for-pound rankings.

Meanwhile, the lightweight division saw some change after Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone defeated Alexander Hernandez. Plus, women’s flyweight division saw some change after Paige VanZant and Joanne Calderwood leave Brooklyn with wins.
