T.J. Dillashaw is looking like a true flyweight ahead of his superfight with 125-pound champion Henry Cejudo later this month at UFC on ESPN+ 1.
The reigning UFC bantamweight champion is hoping to drop down to flyweight, defeat “Messenger,” take his newly-acquired title, and become just the fourth fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold two belts at the same time. In order to make that dream a reality Dillashaw has to successfully cut down to flyweight standards and make sure his body is properly prepared.
Well, in a recent Instagram post (shown above), Dillashaw showed off his flyweight physique just two weeks out from his title fight with Cejudo. While Dillashaw is noticeably thinner, he still looks ripped like a mofo.
The following picture also surfaced earlier today (Sat., Jan. 5, 2019) that shows an even skinnier version of the bantamweight champ:

While Dillashaw seems to be on schedule with his cut down to flyweight, there’s still more work to do. Because if “Killashaw” weighs in anywhere above the 125-pound benchmark for UFC on ESPN+ 1 he won’t be eligible to win his second UFC title.
UFC on ESPN+ 1 will take place on Jan. 19 live on ESPN+ from inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. It will also feature the UFC debut of former NFL superstar Greg Hardy.
