Finally, the very first UFC on ESPN+ arrives this Saturday, January 19th. The card is headlined by a Champion vs. Champion matchup where current bantamweight champion T.J Dillashaw moves down in weight to 125 pounds to take on the reigning flyweight champion Henry Cejudo. Cejudo is only the second ever flyweight champion and won his belt against former flyweight Kingpin Demetrious “Might Mouse” Johnson.
