T.J. Dillashaw Says Henry Cejudo Is Scared Ahead Of UFC Brooklyn
T.J. Dillashaw believes Henry Cejudo is dreading weigh-in day.
Dillashaw is the reigning Final Combating Championship (UFC) bantamweight title holder. For his battle this Saturday evening (Jan. 19), Dillashaw strikes down in weight to problem Cejudo for the flyweight gold. Cejudo has stated that Dillashaw seems like a cross nation runner because of chopping the burden.
Dillashaw Fires Again
On the UFC on ESPN+ 1 open exercises, Dillashaw spoke to reporters. He stated that if he makes weight on Friday, Cejudo might be a nervous wreck (through MMAJunkie.com)
“It’s all of it. At first I was chasing Demetrious Johnson. Everyone was saying he’s the greatest pound-for-pound fighter. That’s my spot. I really believe that’s my spot, so I was chasing it down. He wouldn’t take the fight; Henry Cejudo wanted to call me out after (UFC 227). He said he was going to come up to ’35 to fight me. We offered it to him. We asked him: ‘Come to ’35.’ He turned it down. We knew he was scared. Now he’s shaking in his boots that I’m able to make the weight. He wants to come up with any excuse that I’m going to miss it or I feel bad. … It’s just all of it. (I’m doing this because of) my legacy, second belt and being known as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter.”
Dillashaw could be the newest fighter to change into a “champ champ” within the UFC if he wins on Saturday. We’ve seen Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier, and Amanda Nunes maintain two titles concurrently. Dillashaw has an opportunity to change into the fourth UFC fighter to attain such a feat.
