TJ Dillashaw Wants To Become The First Man To Hold Titles In Three Different Weight Classes!
The current Bantamweight champion, TJ Dillashaw, is slated to fight Henry Cejudo at the main event of UFC Fight Night 143, for UFC Flyweight title. The two will collide on Saturday, January 19, 2019, in Brooklyn, New York. TJ will become a two-division champion if he dethrones “The Messenger”.
TJ Dillashaw is even interested in moving up to UFC Featherweight division and facing Max Holloway!
“Would I move up to 145 [pounds]? Absolutely, man,” TJ Dillashaw said on a recent Instagram live video. “I would love to. I’m a professional. I train hard. Making ’25s has been a process in its own… To get my body down there and do it the right way. ’45s would have to be the same thing, it would be a lot of work.
“Right now I’m in love with food because I don’t get to eat as much of it. If I went ’45s I’d hate it because I’d be doing nothing but stuffing my face but that’s definitely something I would love to do.”
But at the moment, it is unknown whether Dillashaw’s plan for a fight versus Max Holloway might come to fruition. “Blessed” also considers moving one division up.
TJ Dillashaw adds he “would love to” fight Max Holloway. Yet, he needs to win Cejudo first. TJ claims his weight looks fine heading into the clash versus “The Messenger”.
“Weight is good,” Dillashaw said. “I’m ahead of schedule. Very excited about that. Wakin’ up light.
“Everyone wants me to go to featherweight and fight Max. I would love to. But look, one step at a time. Let’s run through Cejudo first then Max can be next. [I can] be the first one to ever go for three belts.”
