Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo made UFC history last weekend. After calling out reigning UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw, Dillashaw has now come forward with a few words.
Henry Cejudo faced off against UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227 on Aug. 4. Cejudo earned a split decision victory over his opponent for the title.
After the fight, Cejudo called out the winner of UFC 227’s headliner between T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt. Following Dillashaw’s victory, the UFC bantamweight champion accepted the match up.
Speaking with former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub on Bellow the Belt, T.J. Dillashaw has come forward with some more words on the possible super fight.
“Cejudo, I’m up for the challenge. I think I walk right through you. “I think it’d be great. The thing is too, if you want to fight me, I’m coming for you.
“That’s the best financial advice to do. I got two belts. Two-division champ. It’s the thing to do now.”
“Absolutely [I’ll go down to 125 pounds]. I can make it easy. I got down the day of weigh-ins to 133 [pounds]. I weighed 133 the day of weigh-ins and I was like ‘oh s–t I might as well drink a couple more pounds’. I made weight easy, super easy.”
“He’s a gold medalist, he’s a UFC champion, he’s got some followers. He’s got a name. I’d love to smash him. It’s a great one to put under my belt.”
