Wow. This whole, ‘TJ Dillashaw is a snake’ thing has really taken a life of it’s own. TJ has used the snake reference in his marketing of himself and now Henry Cejudo has implemented it into his trash talk game. Speaking to TMZ, Cejudo claims that he’s going to “Behead the snake” this weekend.
Dillashaw will be moving down in weight to challenge Cejudo for his title while trying to become the UFC’s 4th ever double champ.
The two fighters will square off on ESPN’s inaugural UFC event this Saturday on the 19th. Dillashaw has received criticism about the weight cut being too much for him but he doesn’t seem to be worried. Pictures of TJ have surfaced and he’s totally shredded and sucked in, just days before weigh-ins.
We’ll see if the snake can shed enough skin to make championship weight this Friday.
