By FCF Staff
The super fight between bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw and flyweight champ Henry Cejudo has reportedly been moved from UFC 233 to the promotion’s ESPN debut.
Dillashaw was expected to challenge Cejudo for the 125 title on January 26th, but, ESPN recently reported that the fight’s been moved to the UFC’s January 19th card in Brooklyn. That event will mark the beginning of the UFC’s new broadcasting deal with ESPN.
MMA Junkie has also confirmed with UFC officials that Cejudo – Dillashaw has been moved to the January 19th show.
Cejudo (13-2) ended Demetrious Johnson’s historic reign as champion this past August, by defeating the now former champ via split decision.
Dillashaw (16-3) hasn’t competed since UFC 227 in August as well, when he stopped Cody Garbrandt for a second time.
The UFC is reportedly working on booking a new main event for UFC 233 in Anaheim.
