Pic: UFC on ESPN+ poster drops for ‘Cejudo vs Dillashaw’ on Jan. 19 in Brooklyn

New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is set to make its transition from the FOX network to ESPN, starting with UFC on ESPN + 1, the Jan. 19, 2018 fight card headlined by the flyweight title fight pitting newly-crowned 125-pound kingpin, Henry Cejudo, opposite current bantamweight champion, TJ Dillashaw.

Now they have an official poster.

Cejudo and Dillashaw were pulled from the since-canceled UFC 233 co-main event and awarded headlining duties. No word yet on whether or not Dillashaw will “kill” the division with a win in Brooklyn, New York.

Then again, “The Messenger” might be tempted to grant him an immediate rematch if Dillashaw loses, so that he can become “champ-champ” by holding the promotion’s 135-pound strap.

Elsewhere on the card, flyweight sensation Paige VanZant collides with Rachael Ostovich, while the controversial Greg Hardy makes his Octagon debut against heavyweight journeyman, Allen Crowder.
