Henry Cejudo enters this weekend’s action sporting a professional 13-2 MMA record. Fresh off of his decision victory over Demetrious Johnson, Cejudo is vying for his 1st ever title defense. But even if he gets the win this weekend, can we expect another title defense for Cejudo? After all, the UFC practically gutted the Flyweight Division, leading many to believe that the UFC will close out the division following this Saturday’s title bout. As of now the UFC hasn’t officially announced anything and it kind of feels like they’re waiting for the results of this bout. Cejudo enters on a 3 fight winning streak and will be looking to use his wrestling to edge out a win. And even though Cejudo is an Olympic wrestler, he may meet his match in Dillashaw.

TJ Dillashaw is the UFC’s Bantamweight Champion, who has proven that he is the best bantamweight on the planet. The question now is, is he the best flyweight as well? Well we’ll certainly get that answer this weekend but it looks like the UFC betting online odds are leaning towards yes here. At the end of the day, Dillashaw is a talented wrestler and is a better striker than Cejudo. Both fighters have tremendous cardio, so there’s no question that this weekend’s event will be breathtaking.
