    I watched Cejudo last three fights and I was impressed with his improvements fight to fight. Very close deciscion loss to Benavidez, put a clinic on Ries, and completely nullified Pettis. I know they aren't anywhere near as good as DJ, but at +350, he might be worth putting a few bucks on?

    I'm kind of surprised he isn't a +400 or higher considering DJs dominance.

    If you are lookin' for an upset, Look at Cub Swanson.

    Most betting sites only require a minimum of $10 to bet on someone. No harm putting a little down when the odds are this large.

    Maybe he's just tired. Sometimes I get cranky when I'm tired.

    He was doing good in the fight with MM until he wasnt LOL. Seemed ok on the feet. Landed a slick takedown. When MM pushed him off the top control he seemed to lose it and then got blasted standing.

    I'm hoping he KO's MM and for the shock value.

    Yah, it's surprising he is not higher than 400 considering how DJ has dominated but Cejudo is an Olympic Gold Medalist, and the type of fighter love like CroCop or Rose that can be a headcase and can perform to the unfathomable high levels and then throw in a clunker. Cejudo won a gold medal, but the year before, he was losing everything in wrestling. After he won the gold medal, he never repeated the same success. He is the type of fighter who is most on when he is over looked, and for as great as DJ looked for Borg, it took him a while to pull off the finish.

    DJ won't win the wrestling exchanges like he did vs Björk, he won't bully Cejudo, he likely won't win the boxing exchanges, and if he wins, it will be something that he sees and pounces on quickly.

    McEjudo is an improved fighter and should be the best fighter that DJ has ever faced, owing to his advancements. The question remains: has McEjudo progressed enough and has DJ regressed enough?

    Me, personally, I just have a hard time envisioning anyone that is not a UFC champion caliber fighter beating DJ (i.e. Dillishaw, Cruz or Garbrandt).

    Everyone looks great until their fighting Mighty Mouse. I am interested to see if he has made any improvements though.

    Watch his Hies and Pettis fight, he looks completely different on the feet. Using a karate/Machida/Connor stance and his striking is much much improved.

    Reis and Pettis are basically amateurs compared to D.J though.

    Haha, yeah, I'm not saying he will do the same to DJ, but that he is a much better fighter than his first DJ fight. Much better hands, much better at using hands to enter takedowns, etc. I'm actually excited for this fight since I think Cejudo is the best competition DJ has faced in some time.

    Agreed, haven't been this hyped for a D.J fight for awhile.

    I swear UFC pays some of these pro-Cejudo posters to fake this fight will be competitive.

    He stands no chance against DJ.
    He hasn't shown anywhere near the improvements he needs to beat DJ from the 1st time.

    And I'm a DJ hater.

    it tough to put money on cejudo after their first fight. doesnt matter how much cejudo improved. i thought he would lnp him the first time... i would be surprised if he can do it, but he is the only guy out there at 125 that can.

    Not paid, the odds are where they should be at +350. He has show improvement, and DJ is coming off of an injury. Cejudo has looked great since the loss.

    If you are laughing at that, then you must think the odds are worthwhile to bet on DJ?
