5 Things to Know About T.J. Dillashaw

T.J. Dillashaw has fixed his sights on a second Ultimate Fighting Championship title.

The reigning bantamweight champion will downshift to 125 pounds to challenge Henry Cejudo for the undisputed flyweight crown in the UFC Fight Night Brooklyn headliner on Jan. 19 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The event marks the promotion’s debut on the ESPN Plus streaming platform. Dillashaw, 32, finds himself on a career-best four-fight winning streak, as he seeks to join Daniel Cormier, Conor McGregor, and Amanda Nunes as the only simultaneous two-division champions in UFC history. In his way stands Cejudo, a one-time Olympic gold medalist who made a smooth transition to mixed martial arts in 2013 and has been on the rise ever since.
