    Cejudo is the first fighter in the UFC capable of defending both belts and running two divisions at the same time.

    UFC does not want to promote him.

    They don't want pay him.

    He asks for a lot of money.

    Instead of promoting a trilingual gold medal winner who can run two divisions, UFC wanted Cejudo to get KO'd, scrap the division, and be done with him, they don't want to pay actual fighters any money at that weight. Cejudo won't accept bs money.
    This is a problem. I don't see how the UFC is going to deal with this after he beats TJ at 135. I don't think he will even be offered that fight, as of right now. WME has to be realizing their driver is blind behind the wheel. What are they doing? Has Dana always been this inept? The answer is yes, Lorenzo and Joe Silva bless. Dana likes shredded men with KO ability. That's it. He needs to hire someone. It's embarrassing to watch now. His matchmaking and talent evaluation skills are truly abysmal.

    If UFC can't get behind a talent like Cejudo.. a man who could potentially run two divisions simultaneously.. what are we all doing here?

    Thoughts?

    No
    There’s no such thing as a real or fake double champ
    Your either a double champ or your not

    No fighter has ever actively defended two belts. Cejudo could do that. That is a true double champion. Now he is simply shit on, in favor of someone like Greg Hardy.

    well he hasnt won his second championship yet. He still has to win at 135... I think DC could have defended both as well. the problem is one person being 2 champs means less fights for both titles. It wont happen.

    Not sure wtf you're talking about but the UFC won't ever let somebody defend 2 belts simultaneously. I guess DC isn't legit because he didn't beat Jones?

    He moves to 135, Dana shuts down the 125. He might win the 135 title but you can't be a champ-champ with a dead division.

    In my mind he does. If UFC has a brain, they won't let Cejudo fight for it, not for over a year at least, if they expect TJ to win. They going to rush him back out like Cody to get KO'd twice in 6 months? Where is he now? The way UFC operates today, probably, actually. They might be dumb enough to think TJ can beat Cejudo at 135 right now. He can't, for many reasons. MM so underrated!! He lost and fled the continent. Just from an athetic level, now with all things equal.. Cejudo is a superior athlete, and is 5 years younger, and doesn't roid. He is the most confident fighter on the roster right now. When he was truly laughing at TJ saying "if you take me down one time, one time, i will concede the victory to you.. (then continuing to laugh his ass off on Ariel's show) I knew it was official. He'd kill TJ. At any weight. Dude has blossomed.

    They are actually.. every title fight for at least the last year. That's why I have to pay people to place bets for me now. I'm very restricted. And have to fly to Vegas to properly hedge something now.

    How is he shit on?
    Defending doesn’t make him anymore of a double champ it just makes him a better a champ
    Anyway it’s tough in the flyweights as that division is being held up in
    TJ has 0 flyweight fights Comes down loses
    Now cejudo should come up and fight
    What about Joe B and the other contenders
    The flw division shouldn’t be held up like that
    Joe B vs Cejudo
    TJ vs Moraes/Raphael winner
