Henry Cejudo & TJ Dillashaw Are Reportedly Going to Battle at UFC’s ESPN+ Debut
It looks like Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw are not going to be fighting in Anaheim after all, as it's being reported that the UFC champs will now battle at the promotion's upcoming card in Brooklyn.
Dillashaw was going to face Cejudo for his flyweight belt at UFC 233, January 26th, but ESPN’s Ariel Helwani is reporting the super fight’s been moved to the UFC’s January 19th card in Brooklyn. That event will be the first UFC card to be broadcast on ESPN and ESPN+.
Cejudo (13-2) will be fighting for the first time since he defeated Demetrious Johnson by split decision in August at UFC 227, and halted the latter’s historic run as champ.
Dillashaw (16-3) also fought at UFC 227 and stopped rival Cody Garbrandt again.
So, now it remains to be seen what main event the UFC can book for the January 26th show, which is coming up fast.
