Johnson and Dillashaw? Henry Cejudo will fight either, but says 135 champ 'in for a treat' at 125

“I have no rivalry with T.J., but I can see Demetrious Johnson easily handling T.J.,” Cejudo said. “Because you lose an additional 10 pounds against the pound-for-pound king, going down to his weight class? Well-rounded, good wrestler, good striker, just a great mixed martial artist? Man, you’re in for a treat. He can say he’s light and everything, but when you get down to 125 pounds, you’re going to feel it the next day. And Demetrious is a cardio machine. I think that’s what’s going to make that fight dangerous.”

UFC 218 ‘Holloway vs Aldo 2’ Play-by-Play, Results & Round-by-Round Scoring

Allen Crowder vs. Justin Willis Round 1 The southpaw Willis catches Crowder's first kick and sends a left hand down the center. Willis catches another kick, and this time the American Kickboxing Academy fighter feeds Crowder several hard left hands before releasing the leg. Willis catches Crowder rushing inside and grabs him in the Thai clinch to deliver a hard pair of knees. Backing Crowder up to the fence, Willis zaps the UFC newcomer with another hard left straight, and this one nearly buckles Crowder's legs. Willis walks him down, gets a collar tie and shoots an uppercut up the middle to Crowder's chin. Two minutes into the bout, Crowder's face is bright red from all the strikes he's been absorbing. Crowder gets rocked by yet another left hand and staggers backward to the fence. Willis misses with a clinch knee, then releases and absolutely torches Crowder with one final left to the jaw. Crowder collapses in a heap as referee Dan Miragliotta rushes in for the stoppage. The Official Result Justin Willis def. Allen Crowder via KO (Punches) R1 2:33

And that’s when – after that head kick, boom, he threw the jab. I saw the jab coming, I kind of slipped. … That spinning back elbow happened, and that’s all she wrote.”

By the Numbers: TUF 26 Finale

No matter what happens from here, Nicco Montano will always be first. Montano became the inaugural Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s flyweight champion, capturing the belt with a unanimous decision victory over Roxanne Modafferi in “The Ultimate Fighter” 26 Finale headliner on Friday night.

Here is a by-the-numbers look at the “TUF 26” finale, with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com. 186: Significant strikes landed by Montano during her five-round triumph.

‘TUF 26’ Finale Prelims: Ryan Janes Stuns Favored Andrew Sanchez in Remarkable Comeback

Ryan Janes, the biggest underdog on the card gets the huge comeback win over Andrew Sanchez! https://t.co/bahcmqyqGD — FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) December 2, 2017 Andrew Sanchez threw everything in his arsenal at Ryan Janes . It was not enough. Janes disposed of the heavily favored former Resurrection Fighting Alliance champion with third-round punches, highlighting “The Ultimate Fighter” 26 Finale prelims on Friday at Park Theater in Las Vegas. Broken by fatigue and an accumulation of damage, Sanchez (9-4, 2-2 UFC) wilted 58 seconds into Round 3. No one could have foreseen the finish after Janes (10-3, 2-2 UFC) absorbed a hellacious beating in the first round. Sanchez tore into the Canadian with a sustained burst of power punches. Twice “The Ultimate Fighter 23” winner dropped Janes with right hands and swarmed with follow-up punches. However, his inability to close the deal proved costly. Sanchez entered the second round visibly winded -- and vulnerable. A rejuvenated Janes pressed forward, cut off weak takedown attempts and attacked the K Dojo Warrior Tribe rep with punches to the body and head.

Matches to Make After UFC 218

Max Holloway sent a cold two-word message to those who would seek to overthrow him: Good luck. The Hawaiian superstar carved up Jose Aldo in their rematch and authored a third-round technical knockout to retain the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight title in the UFC 218 main event on Saturday at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. Holloway buried the Brazilian with punches 4:51 into Round 3, as he put his 12th straight win in the books and continued to paint himself as a historical figure at 145 pounds. Even armed with his vaunted leg kicks, Aldo was no match for the champion. Holloway lulled him to sleep for the better part of two rounds and then lured him into a firefight from which there was no escape. According to preliminary FightMetric data, the 25-year-old unleashed 212 strikes on Aldo in the third round alone, connecting with 114 of them. Picture a lawnmower hitting an ant pile. By fight’s end, Holloway had landed nearly 100 more significant strikes than the future hall of famer. In the aftermath of UFC 218 “Holloway vs.
