Video: TJ Dillashaw, Henry Cejudo face off with Mario Lopez on Extra

Will Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) book a bantamweight vs. flyweight championship “super fight” between reigning 135-pound titleholder TJ Dillashaw and newly-minted 125-pound kingpin Henry Cejudo?

Promotion president Dana White isn’t ruling it out.

One of the big questions heading into that proposed showdown following their respective wins at UFC 227 is why Demetrious Johnson isn’t entitled to an immediate rematch based on his record-setting accomplishments. The other is how Dillashaw and Cejudo match up inside the cage.

UFC fan and Extra host Mario Lopez has one of the two answers in the video above.

There is also some unfinished business at bantamweight with both Dominick Cruz and Raphael Assuncao — each holding past wins over Dillashaw — claiming their right to the next 135-pound title shot.

But UFC is in the business of making money (obviously) and will likely book the bout that gets the most bang for the buck. Whether or not that’s Dillashaw vs. Cejudo remains to be seen.
