Will the foundation be laid for a UFC bantamweight title fight between Marlon Moraes No. 1 and champion Henry Cejudo (19659004)?
The UFC's 135-pound division fell into disarray on early Wednesday, when champions TJ Dillashaw announced that he had been reported for allegedly violating the US Anti-Doping Agency and was giving up his title belt. On Wednesday evening Cejudo and Moraes, who have the same manager in Ali Abdelaziz, went back and forth on Twitter.
It all began with a comment that Cejudo made about Ariel Helwani of ESPN. He was to be referred to as "the Cejudoweight Division" both as an airman weight and as a bantamweight. This received an answer from Moraes, who is confident that he will get the free title.
"Tell Cejudo to stay on track". Moraes said . "We all saw what happened to T.J. last weight change. If he thinks about bringing his little ass to 135, he has trouble. "
Cejudo did not allow this one blow and mocked Moraes' previous rank as World Series of Fighting Champion (via Twitter ).
I was the youngest gold medalist in the Olympics. I am the UFC Flyweight Champion and have just eliminated a PED user in 32 seconds. Do you think I'm scared of a former champion of the World Series of Fighting? Lol
Moraes's reaction also included a shot at Cejudo, who had fallen in love with WWE star Nikki Bella (via Twitter ).
Stay humble, my friend I'll take care of myself, or you'll mess with me worse than you with this WWE girl # bantamweightdivision
Dillashaw's breathtaking development had failed drug testing, it was said that he either had a rematch with Cejudo (125 or 135) or wanted to defend his title against Moraes. Well, since all changes with the title are bantamweight free. Cejudo and Moraes are already making noise.
Cejudo (14-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC) is currently in a four-fight winning streak, and his stock was never higher after defeating Demetrious Johnson to win the title title holder and Dillashaw in his first title defense. Meanwhile, Moraes (22-5 MMA, 4-1 UFC) is on a four-man winning streak, which includes three straight-finishs in the first round over 135-pound rivals Aljamain Sterling, Jimmie Rivera and Raphael Assuncao.
