Flyweight champion Henry Cejudo will meet with UFC president Dana White on Thursday to discuss the fate of his 125-pound division. "They got rid of a lot of people in my weight class. It's unfortunate," Cejudo said during an appearance on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show on Monday. "My back's against the wall." Cejudo, for his part, believes his 32-second TKO of bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw on Saturday saved the flyweight division, though he reiterated his desire to rematch Dillashaw for the 135-pound belt.
Rachael Ostovich hyperextended her left arm in her second-round armbar submission loss to Paige VanZant Saturday night in Brooklyn, N.Y, according to her manager Brian Butler. She will undergo further tests when she returns home to Hawaii later this week.
TJ Dillashaw told me he is very upset about the referee's decision to stop the fight. He said he's never seen that referee before and feels he doesn't know as much about officiating as TJ does. He said the referee asked him to "show him something" and he continued to work. He wants an immediate rematch against Henry Cejudo at the same 125 pound weight.
