2019-01-19, pretty good fight between Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw
: it gets three stars (UFC Performance of the Night).
The 2008 Olympic freestyle wrestling gold medalist and current Ufc Flw champion Henry Cejudo entered this fight with a professional mma record of 13-2-0 (38% ko/tko victory rate – he has never won via submission) and he is ranked as the No.1 flyweight in the world. He lost two consecutive bouts in 2016, against Demetrious Johnson in their first bout (Johnson vs Cejudo I) and with Joseph Benavidez (via split decision, Benavidez vs Cejudo), but then he has won three fights taking revenge on Johnson in his last one (Demetrious Johnson vs Henry Cejudo 2).
His opponent, the Ufc Bw champ TJ Dillashaw, has an official record of 16-3-0 (69% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.1 bantamweight. He was defeated by Dominick Cruz in 2016 (via split decision, Dillashaw vs Cruz), but then he has won four bouts beating Cody Garbrandt twice in his last two fights (Cody Garbrandt vs TJ Dillashaw I and TJ Dillashaw vs Cody Garbrandt II ). Cejudo vs Dillashaw, main event of UFC Fight Night 143 (also known as UFC on ESPN+ 1), is valid for the Ufc flyweight title (Cejudo’s first defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
