The UFC will make it’s debut on ESPN+ on January 19 with a fight card headlined by a flyweight title fight between TJ Dillashaw and Henry Cejudo.
TJ Dillashaw will enter his title fight with the former Olympic Gold medalist on a four-fight win streak. TJ’s most recent wins came against Cody Garbrandt who he knocked out at both UFC 217 and UFC 227.
Having finally rid himself of his former teammate turned bitter rival “No Love“, “Killashaw” is now focused on becoming the promotions third male “champ champ”.
Meanwhile, Henry Cejudo will attempt to defend his flyweight title for the first time against TJ Dillashaw on January 19. The former Olympian dethroned longtime flyweight kingpin Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227 by way of split-decision.
In the co-main event of the evening, controversial former NFL star Greg Hardy will make his UFC debut against Allen Crowder.
Greg Hardy has gone a perfect 3-0 thus far in his young and budding mixed martial arts career, with all three of those wins coming via first-round stoppages.
Also featured on the main card is a women’s flyweight fight between fan favorites Rachael Ostovich and Paige VanZant.

The octagon will return to Madison Square Garden Arena next month for the promotions UFC 230: Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis pay-per-view event.
The UFC 230 fight card, which takes place November 3 in New York City, is headlined by a heavyweight title fight featuring reigning champion Daniel Cormier taking on surging division contender Derrick Lewis.
The fight card was originally slated to feature Nate Diaz vs. Dustin Poirier as it’s co-headliner. Unfortunately for fight fans however, “The Diamond” was forced to withdraw from the contest due to a hip injury.
Following the removal of Diaz vs. Poirier from UFC 230, the promotion announced that a rematch between former UFC middleweight champions Chris Weidman and Luke Rockhold would now serve as the evenings co-main event.
That announcement did not last long, as shortly after news broke that Luke Rockhold had suffered an injury and would no longer be able to compete against Weidman on November 3.
With that being said, the promotion was then forced to pull Jacare Souza from his scheduled bout with David Branch, and move the Brazilian into the co-main event of UFC 230 opposite Chris Weidman.
Jared Cannonier is now expected to replace Jacare Souza against David Branch at Madison Square Garden (Update: Branch vs. Cannonier is now official).
