With UFC 227 lurking around the corner, its not just the fans who have picked their sides, but fighters as well. The co-main event features a rematch for the UFC flyweight gold, between Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and Henry “The Messanger” Cejudo. Following the release of the official UFC poster for the event, UFC middleweight Kelvin Gastelum tweeted his support for the challenger and the possible underdog in the fight, Henry Cejudo.
Current UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson has been steam rolling his opponents and now holds the record for most number of title defences, a streak of which the Olympic Gold medalist Cejudo finds himself a part of.

The first encounter between the two took place at UFC 197, when Cejudo succumbed to a barge of strikes from “Mighty Mouse”, falling to a first round TKO loss. However, he is currently on a two fight win streak defeating Wilson Reis and Sergio Pettis. If he is able to stop the pound for pound No. 1 this may very well be the biggest night of his MMA career.
