Dillashaw would still take to Instagram a short time after the loss to issue the following statement:
Well F*#% that didn’t go as planned. Sorry to all my fans that I didn’t get to show all my hard work. Tough one to swallow having the fight taken from me like that. But I need to lead by example for my son and practice what I preach, brush my self off and pray that I get the chance to do it again.
Cejudo did say that he would grant Dillashaw a rematch, but would like their second encounter to be up a weight class at bantamweight. Cejudo may have also saved the men’s flyweight division with the victory over Dillashaw, as the weight class was expected to be dropped by the UFC sometime this year.
