This is Cejudo’s second straight fight as an underdog after he closed as a large +350 puppy 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 success to become the second-ever flyweight champion.
However, it seems sensible for Dillashaw to be favored because he is the bigger man falling down in weight. Here is the fifth time ever that the UFC has two sitting winners endure toe-to-toe and the fighter that has made the burden class move is 3-1 in the previous four fights, together with B.J. Penn’s loss to GSP in 2009 being the only defeat. That being said, Dillashaw is the first to fall down in weight to challenge for another belt, since B.J. Penn, Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier and Amanda Nunes all moved up in weight since they appeared to fasten two belts at the same moment.
