Cejudo Vs. Dillashaw Title Fight Official For UFC 233

Signed, sealed and soon-to-be delivered.

An Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Flyweight title fight between current division kingpin Henry Cejudo and Bantamweight champ, T.J. Dillashaw, has been made official for the upcoming UFC 233 pay-per-view (PPV) event on January 26, 2018 inside The Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

The fight has been rumored for quite some time, and now that it’s official, even more questions will be raised regarding the future of the 125-pound division under the UFC umbrella. After reports surfaced pointing to the promotion doing away with the weight class altogether following Demetrious Johnson’s move over to ONE FC, Dana White was non-committal on dissolving the division.

Of course, the booking of the fight doesn’t necessarily mean the 125-pound weight class — which has already lost a few fighters — will remain in tact. It could simply be the promotion’s way of sending it off in style with one big “champion vs. champion” showdown.

Plus, it could provide UFC’s next “champ-champ” should Dillashaw prove victorious.

T.J. has been clamoring for a chance to compete for the 125-pound title since defending his 135-pound strap against Cody Garbrandt at UFC 227. Of course, “Viper” had a different opponent in mind at the time. Still, T.J. was very open to fighting Henry, as well, and will now get his chance at history, much to the chagrin of the 135-pound division, I’m sure.

As for Cejudo, the fight will give him the chance to defend his title at least once and perhaps secure himself a guaranteed title shot at 135 pounds should he take out T.J. Either way, fight fans will be in for one hell of a title fight to kick of UFC’s PPV venture in 2019.

Pacquiao-Broner Official For Jan. 19 In Las Vegas

I guess those “talks” broke down.

Boxing icon Manny Pacquiao will make his return to the “sweet science” when he trades leather with former four-division world champion Adrien Broner in a WBA welterweight title fight scheduled for Sat., Jan. 19, 2019 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sorry DAZN subscribers, this one airs exclusively on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV).

”I have missed fighting in Las Vegas, it has been a second home to me,” Pacquiao said. “Returning to the MGM Grand Garden Arena to defend my world title against Adrien Broner is an exciting way to stage my homecoming. Adrien is a tough opponent with an accomplished record. But if I have learned one thing while serving in the Philippine Congress and Senate, it is problem solving.”

Pacquaio (60-7-2), who turns 40 in less than a month, was last seen knocking around Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse last July in Malaysia (watch it). The 29 year-old Broner (33-3-1, 1 NC), meanwhile, is coming off a 12-round draw opposite Jesse Vargas back in April.

“I have paid my dues in this sport, and now it’s time for me to get mine,” Broner said. “I get more views than everybody when I fight. A lot of people are going to see me pack off Pacquiao into retirement, and without his belt.”

Tickets for Pacquiao vs. Broner go on sale this Sat. (Nov. 24) and start at $ 1,500, $ 1,000, $ 750, $ 500, $ 300, $ 200, $ 100, not including applicable service charges. Boxing fans can order seats online through AXS.com, charge by phone at 866-740-7711 or in person at any MGM Resorts International box office.
