Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight titleholder, TJ Dillashaw, recently told the mixed martial arts (MMA) community that he could easily hit the flyweight limit in his quest to drop down in weight to capture a second division title.
He wasn’t kidding (sorry, Ali).
Dillashaw was the first fighter on the scale today for the UFC on ESPN+ 1 weigh ins, held in advance of tomorrow night’s (Sat., Jan. 19, 2019) combat sports event inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, tipping the scale under the championship limit at 124.6.
And while he looked lanky and lean, he didn’t appear Irvin-ish.
Hoping to spoil the 125-pound party is reigning division kingpin, Henry Cejudo, who is no stranger to struggles on the scale. The good news for “The Messenger” is that he’s been on his mark in recent years, including today’s championship number of 124.4.
