“I personally don’t think he’ll make it,” Abdelaziz said. “If he makes it, he’s going to be weak, fragile, and he’s going to have a long, long night with the champ.”
Dillashaw would post the following on Instagram:
Treigning Lab Gangsters straight flexin in the Garage! Who thinks I’m looking fragile and weak --? oh and you’re not cool unless you pee your pants --. @treigning_lab . Looking to get a six pack? No better way than joining my Fit to Fight course at tjdillashaw.com. Promise you will not be disappointed . #nofilter #killashaw #treigninglabstrong
A fan by the screen name of zachfischer95 would say the following in the comments section of Dillashaw’s post:
“Cejudo’s manager was talking shit saying you won’t make weight and that they will fight Joseph Benavidez come fight fight night. Jokes on him. His boys about to get smoked. #teamkillashaw”
That would lead to the following response from Dillashaw, who promised to kill Cejudo:
“cause he’s praying that I don’t make weight! He know I’ll kill his fighter”
