The UFC is hosting its first event on ESPN+ this weekend and the company seems to be putting its best foot forward, but the main event between Henry Cejudo and T.J. Dillashaw hasn’t seemed to gain the traction that it should have.
Cejudo a 2008 Olympic gold medalist in freestyle wrestling for the United States, has been critical of Dillashaw's bold decision to cut an additional 10 pounds considering it was "The Messenger" who said he would move up to face Dillashaw immediately after his title win at UFC 227.
Dillashaw is fresh off a pair of spectacular knockout wins of the former champion Garbrandt to regain the 135-pound title he originally won from Renan Barao in 2014. The 32-year-old champion enters the fight already among the top P4P fighters in the world and could make an interesting case at being No. 1 by winning his second world title in as many divisions.
