Cejudo To Defend Against Dillashaw At UFC 233

As the MMA community prepares to write the eulogy of the UFC flyweight division, TJ Dillashaw looks to become the third and possibly final champion at 125 pounds.

Dillashaw’s “superfight” against Henry Cejudo will see the bantamweight champion drop to 125-pounds for Cejudo’s first and possibly only defense of the title at UFC 233 on January 26th at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

If successful, Dillashaw will join Randy Couture, BJ Penn, Conor McGregor, Georges St-Pierre and Daniel Cormier as the only male two-weight champions in UFC History, with only Cormier and McGregor holding two at one time.

Dillashaw has campaigned for a fight at flyweight against former champion and current ONE championship star Demetrious Johnson, but had failed to materialize due to Cejudo taking the title via split decision at UFC 227.
