2. Is There Such A Thing As A Mouse Trap?
Demetrious Johnson is set to defend his flyweight title once again, and this time it’s against the touted Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo.
Cejudo (10-0) has elite wrestling due to his Olympic background, and some magnificent Muay Thai to boot. Indeed, “The Messenger” is an extremely speedy and powerful striker who mixes in his takedowns well.
Cejudo has been looked at as the man to potentially give “Mighty Mouse” a run for his money by many, however, it was assumed he’d have more fighting experience before doing so. Alas, Cejudo’s confidence has not dwindled as he has labeled himself “The Mouse Trap” ahead of the flyweight title bout with “Mighty Mouse”.
Johnson (23-2-1) is possibly the pound-for-pound best fighter on the planet. “Mighty Mouse” is so technically smooth to the point of having no equal and has ruled the flyweight division since its inception in 2012. Johnson has finished four of his last six fights, and most recently won a dominant unanimous decision victory over John Dodson.
Cejudo is definitely the biggest threat to “Mighty Mouse’s” throne, but will the flyweight king prevail once again?
