The UFC is heading to Brooklyn for its very first card of 2019 and its very first card on ESPN following a seven-year deal with Fox Sports. The event is headlined by a winner vs winner fight as bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw is dropping down to the flyweight division to take on Henry”The Messenger” Cejudo. Dillashaw is looking to become the seventh fighter to win belts in two different weight classes and is now a -230 favorite with Cejudo coming back at +180.
T.J. Dillashaw is averaging 5.38 significant strikes every second.
Henry Cejudo won gold at the 2008 Olympic Games.
Five of T.J. Dillashaw’s past seven wins have come via knockout.

This can be Cejudo’s second right fight as an underdog after he shut as a big +350 dog against Demetrious”Mighty Mouse” Johnson, arguably the pound-for-pound greatest in the moment. The former Olympian outwrestled DJ en route to a split-decision victory to become the second-ever flyweight champion.
But it seems sensible for Dillashaw to be favored because he is the larger man falling down in weight. This is the fifth time that the UFC has had two sitting champions stand toe-to-toe along with the fighter who has made the weight class move is 3-1 in the past four fights, together with B.J. Penn’s loss to GSP in 2009 being the only defeat. That having been said, Dillashaw is the first to drop down in weight to battle for a second belt, as B.J. Penn, Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier and Amanda Nunes all moved up in weight as they appeared to secure two straps at the exact same moment.
