The octagon will return to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on January 19 for the UFC’s debut event on ESPN which is headlined by a flyweight title fight between TJ Dillashaw and Henry Cejudo.
TJ Dillashaw will enter his title fight with the former Olympic Gold medalist on a four-fight win streak. TJ’s most recent wins came against Cody Garbrandt who he knocked out at both UFC 217 and UFC 227.
Having finally rid himself of his former teammate turned bitter rival “No Love“, “Killashaw” is now focused on becoming the promotions third male “champ champ”.
Meanwhile, Henry Cejudo will attempt to defend his flyweight title for the first time against TJ Dillashaw on January 19. The former Olympian dethroned longtime flyweight kingpin Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227 by way of split-decision.
In the co-main event of the evening, controversial former NFL star Greg Hardy will make his UFC debut against Allen Crowder.
Greg Hardy has gone a perfect 3-0 thus far in his young and budding mixed martial arts career, with all three of those wins coming via first-round stoppages.
Also featured on the main card is a women’s flyweight fight between fan favorites Rachael Ostovich and Paige VanZant.
