UFC 233: Henry Cejudo to defend flyweight belt against T.J. Dillashaw
“The Messenger,” 31, won the belt from Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227 in August. He has been vocal about fighting Dillashaw and signed a six-fight extension earlier this month. It could be argued that Cejudo is defending the entire division from being shuttered by the UFC.

Dillashaw, 32, defeated Cody Garbrandt in an impressive fashion also at UFC 227. He will be dropping down to 125 pounds for the fight.
