Henry Cejudo Renames Two Weight Classes The “Cejudoweight Division”

UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo was last seen in action at UFC Fight Night Brooklyn, defeating former UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw by first round TKO.

A increasingly confident Cejudo has said there is no such thing as a flyweight division or a bantamweight division no more, just the Cejudoweight division.

“I’m the biggest name now,” Cejudo told Ariel Helwani of ESPN. “I hold all the cards. It ain’t the flyweight division or the bantamweight division it’s the Cejudoweight division. So I will just wait and see what the UFC has planned for the Cejudoweight division.”

Cejudo and Dillashaw were reportedly set to rematch in the future, but there were adverse findings in Dillashaw’s drug test that was in line with UFC Fight Night Brooklyn, which lead to Dillashaw relinquishing the UFC Bantamweight Title.

The fighter did enter the UFC Fight Night Brooklyn event with the intent of saving the flyweight division, which was reportedly set to be eliminated in the near future.

There has been no formal announcement by the UFC at this time as to the future of the bantamweight title, which hasn’t been defended since UFC 227 in August of last year, when Dillashaw defeated Cody Garbrandt by first round knockout
