Current UFC Bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw who will move down in weight class to challenge UFC Flyweight champion Henry Cejudo were scheduled to fight at UFC 233 at the Honda Center in Anaheim on January 26. But now they both have been removed from UFC 233 and will instead headline UFC’s debut on ESPN+.
Henry Cejudo beat former UFC pound-for-pound flyweight champion Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson at UFC 227 which took place in Los Angeles, California. On the same card in the main event, TJ Dillashaw successfully defended his bantamweight title in a rematch against Cody Garbrandt by knocking him out in the very first round. He won the title last year when he knocked out Cody in the second round at UFC 217.
Meanwhile, Henry Cejudo has said that he is going to resurrect the flyweight division and last month both fighters traded heated words at each other at the Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, and then Henry Cejudo had said that he will cut the head of the snake forever, by which he meant beating TJ Dillashaw.
Now Henry Cejudo has reminded people about it again as MMA journalist John Morgan ran into the flyweight champion as he was leaving UFC performance institute.
According to Morgan, Cejudo said, “I’m ready to cut the head off that snake“.
“I’m ready to cut the head off that snake.”
