The UFC is going to Brooklyn for its very first card of 2019 and its very first card on ESPN following a seven-year agreement with Fox Sports. The event is headlined by a winner vs winner battle as bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw is dropping down to the flyweight division to take on Henry“The Messenger“ Cejudo. Dillashaw is seeking to become the seventh fighter to acquire belts in two different weight classes and is a -230 favored with Cejudo coming back at +180.
T.J. Dillashaw is averaging 5.38 significant strikes every second.
Gold was won by henry Cejudo at the 2008 Olympic Games. Five of T.J. Dillashaw’s past seven wins have come through knockout.
This is Cejudo’s second right fight as an underdog after he shut as a big +350 puppy contrary to Demetrious“Mighty Mouse“ Johnson, arguably the pound-for-pound best at the time. The Olympian outwrestled en route to some victory to become the flyweight champion.
But because he’s the man dropping down in weight it makes sense for Dillashaw to be preferred. Here is the fifth time ever that the UFC has had two sitting champions stand toe-to-toe along with the fighter who has made the weight class move is 3-1 in the previous four fights, together with B.J. Penn’s reduction to GSP in 2009 function as the only defeat. That being said, Dillashaw is the first to drop down in weight to battle for another belt, since B.J. Penn, Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier and Amanda Nunes all moved up in weight as they appeared to secure two straps at the exact same time.
