Odds Analysis
This can be Cejudo’s second right fight as an underdog after he closed as a large +350 dog against Demetrious”Mighty Mouse” Johnson, arguably the pound-for-pound greatest at the time. The former Olympian outwrestled DJ en route to some split-decision victory to become the second-ever flyweight champion.
However, it seems sensible for Dillashaw to be preferred because he is the larger man falling down in fat. This is the fifth time that the UFC has two sitting champions stand toe-to-toe and the fighter that has made the weight course move is 3-1 in the previous four fights, together with B.J. Penn’s reduction to GSP in 2009 function as the only defeat. That having been said, Dillashaw is the first to drop down in weight to challenge for a second belt, as B.J. Penn, Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier and Amanda Nunes all moved up in weight as they looked to secure two straps at the same moment.
