    The UFC probably came to the realization that Cejudo/Formiga made 100x more sense for the division and Bagutinov needed a fight so thats when JB came into the picture.

    Cejudo vs. Formiga makes much more sense.

    because sherdog complains no matter what

    if they did joeb vs cejudo, sherdog would complain that the ufc is potentially killing a 125 contender.

    Cejudo wanted to fight in Mexico again and Joe B couldn't do that date for some reason.

    Personally i would of liked to see this match but it can still happen later down the line and i like the match ups that they ended making in the end much better then this match anyway .
    so no reason to complain

    LOL Joe B vs. Cejudo would have been the first Octagon death. They saved Cejudo's life.
