Dillashaw booked to attempt 2-weight champ status vs Cejudo at flyweight


Despite the UFC’s obvious attempt to dissolve their flyweight division, they have booked somewhat of a superfight. After a long time of TJ Dillashaw claiming that he can drop down from bantamweight to flyweight, he finally is. Dillashaw will take on new flyweight champion, Henry Cejudo. Breaking: TJ Dillashaw will move DOWN in weight to … Read moreDillashaw booked to attempt 2-weight champ status vs Cejudo at flyweight

If Dillashaw wants Gervonta Davis, he’ll have to find him on the cell block


TJ Dillashaw and boxer, Gervonta Davis, have gone back and forth about who beats up who. After yesterday, TJ will have to go to a Maryland jail and find him on the cell block if he wants that scrap. Davis was arrested yesterday in connection with a street fight.

However, Mr Davis insists that there was no fighting going on and he’s just the victim of bad profiling.

Davis was taken into custody for disorderly conduct, which is a misdemeanor. One would think that Davis would want to break free of the boxer stigma of doing dumb things outside of the ring. As he continues to show, Gervonta loves to keep the status quo.

Could the UFC be turning the gears on TJ Dillashaw vs. Henry Cejudo

TJ Dillashaw

TJ Dillashaw was on the Joe Rogan Experience and hinted it might take place. Well, I guess Demetrious Johnson’s being the best Flyweight ever and the longest running UFC champion ever doesn’t earn him an immediate rematch. In what was a very hotly contested clash, Henry Cejudo defeated Johnson to become the Flyweight champion via … Read moreCould the UFC be turning the gears on TJ Dillashaw vs. Henry Cejudo

TJ and Cejudo bring the trash talk to the TMZ studios


TJ Dillashaw and Henry Cejudo moved their trash talking feud into the TMZ studios. It’s so bizarre that these two are holding their own world tour, yet, neither Dana White or the UFC have gotten behind this fight in the slightest. Literally, there is no plan for these two to meet but they seem to be trying to make it happen.

The other bizarre thing about this video is that when they do these in-studio interviews, the guys are about 10 feet from one another. There is a healthy respect between Dillashaw and Cejudo, though. Both seem aware of the promotional aspect of a potential fight and don’t have animosity behind their actions.

I wouldn’t mind seeing this fight, but I think we can all agree that Demetrious Johnson deserves a rematch before Cejudo takes on anyone else. However, it remains to be seen what happens in both divisions. TJ has in no way cleaned out his division and Cejudo just became champion. Before this fight comes to fruition, I think they both have some belt defending to do.

It starts. TJ and Cejudo, talk trash on EXTRA with Mario Lopez


It didn’t take long for TJ Dillashaw and Henry Cejudo to get involved in a champ vs champ fracas. It was nothing colossal, but the two are campaigning for this fight and they did it on EXTRA with Mario Lopez at Universal Studios today.

Personally, I feel that if Lopez wasn’t in a boot he would show what the real AC Slater is all about and out-wrestle both of these guys. Sure, Cejudo has an Olympic gold medal, but AC Slater is friends with Screech and Zack Morris, which has to account for something.

Since he was shelved, Lopez mainly just sat between the two as they had a friendly war of words between them. TJ is out there looking like a rock star, while Cejudo looks like the bully from every 80’s movie ever.

UFC 227 was a crazy night of action, take a look back with Fight Motion

UFC 227 is in the books, but you can relive the highlights in super slow motion by checking out the UFC 227 Fight Motion preview. These videos are incredible and they are available with a Fight Pass membership. In these highlights, you can relive the moments from the two championship fights.

TJ Dillashaw retained his title when he stopped Cody Garbrandt in the first round of their rematch. Cody again had Dillashaw hurt first, but threw caution to the wind and got sloppy, got clipped and finished. It’s the second time Cody had TJ on the rails in a fight, only to get stopped moments later.

Henry Cejudo made history when he became the first fighter to win Olympic gold and then earn a UFC title. He won a razor-thin Split Decision victory over Demetrious Johnson to become the Flight champion. It was an incredible fight and Henry pressured DJ for five rounds, earning the victory.

Great Demetrious Johnson animated video ahead of 12th title defense

Demetrious Johnson

Demetrious Johnson is an avid video game player & Twitch legend

The UFC Canada Twitter brand released a cool little video ahead of Demetrious Johnson defending his title for a record twelfth time. He meets Henry Cejudo in a rematch Saturday night. When you look at who he’s defeated and how it really brings to light how special an athlete he is. If he defeats Henry Cejudo again, he will be looking for a big money fight next. The winner of TJ Dillashaw or Cody Garbrandt would be amazing.

Demetrious is down for a fight like that but he feels he needs to be paid an appropriate amount of money for a fight like that. If it’s a superfight, it should be treated as such. He spoke on that subject a while back.

Thanks to UFC Canada for posting this little video, we had to share it with you guys.

The UFC had themselves the UFC 227 media day faceoffs today


The UFC held the UFC 227 main card faceoffs today and everyone was well behaved. However, that’s not to say that the pre-weigh-in staredowns weren’t intense. The only surprise came when Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw didn’t talk trash to each other. Usually, you can’t put those two in the same room together without something popping off. Both remained calm and handled their media duties with class.

On the opposite side of the spectrum was Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo. Despite their little Twitter wars, the two seemed friendly and almost jovial. Trying to judge them based on appearances is tough, but Cejudo already looks like this is a rough cut. DJ looked hydrated and rested as he attempts to set another record with this title defense.

Renato Moicano will look to climb the rankings as he takes on Cub Swanson on Saturday night. Cub is on a two-fight losing streak but has never lost three fights in a row. He’ll look to stop the 12-1 Moicano to avoid slipping down the rankings. Growing a mustache and looking like an extra from ‘Training Day’ may just do the trick.

Polyana Viana stunned on the red carpet and squared off against JJ Aldrich for their strawweight fight.

Lastly, Thiago Santos will look to rebound from his loss to David Branch when he takes on promotional newcomer, Kevin Holland.

The actual weigh-ins and faceoffs will take place tomorrow and you can stream them here on MikeSwick.com.
