The historic UFC on ESPN+ 1 card is a wrap.
The card was headlined by a super fight With flyweight champ Henry Cejudo and bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw for the flyweight belt. Dillashaw stepped in as a heavy favourite in this highly hyped matchup.
Cejudo however had different plans. Cejudo came out guns blazing and absolutely ran through Dillashaw to continue with the trend of a smaller fighter winning in super fights. The fight was as long as it lasted, paid justice to the build up. However the fight caught some heat for the result, a probable early stoppage.
However speaking with Ariel Helwani on his show on ESPN, Dillashaw claimed Cejudo at any weight class. (via Twitter):
"I'll fight Cejudo tomorrow in whatever weight class he wants."
