UFC champ Henry Cejudo says T.J. Dillashaw is OUT OF HIS MIND if he thinks he’s gonna be the first “Champ Champ Champ” … saying he ain’t even gonna make it out of January with two belts.
Of course, Cejudo and Dillashaw are set to do battle on Jan. 19th for Cejudo’s UFC flyweight title — and when we told Henry about T.J.’s plans to win 3 belts in 3 weight classes this year, Henry ripped the guy.
“I think T.J. Dillashaw is dehydrated … he ain’t thinking straight,” Cejudo tells TMZ Sports.
“I’m gonna behead that snake.”
Cejudo ain’t no punk — he dethroned Demetrious Johnson back in August at UFC 227 … ending Mighty Mouse’s legendary streak of 11 straight UFC title defenses.
In fact, Henry says once he gets through Dillashaw, he wants a rematch with DJ — which would be complicated since Johnson was just shipped from the UFC to the ONE Championship promotion in the first MMA trade in UFC history.
By the way, we also asked Cejudo for an update on the Olympic gold medal he lost in a fire back in 2017 — and it sounds like he’s on track to get an official replacement soon.
Remember, before he was a UFC champ, Cejudo won gold in freestyle wrestling at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
The song — “I’m Your Angel — was recorded in 1998 and appeared on her holiday album, “These are Special Times,” R. Kelly wrote the song but it did not appear on any of his albums.
The song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for 6 weeks. It went certified platinum and sold more than 1.5 million copies. It was also nominated for a Grammy.
The song is in the process of being pulled by Celine’s team.
The move comes in the wake of the #MuteRKelly movement which was triggered by the Lifetime docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly.”
R. Kelly has collabed with a number of artists, but so far only Celine and Gaga have made the move to pull their songs. The band Phoenix apologized for collaborating with the singer but didn’t pull the song.
Tito Ortiz says he’s IN for a rematch with Chael Sonnen — telling TMZ Sports, “I’m gonna pummel him for 3 rounds.”
The two have been going back and forth on social media — but Tuesday night in L.A., 43-year-old Ortiz told us the fight is definitely gonna happen … “most likely with Bellator, Scott Coker will make the deal.”
TMZ Sports spoke with Luke — the former UFC middleweight champ who’s moving up to light heavyweight — and he ain’t switching divisions just ’cause cuttin’ weight sucks.
He wants to fight Jon Jones.
“I’m a different man at this weight, with the power behind me. I’m moving up to get after him. So, that’s what I’m here for.”
Luke’s just the latest to throw his hat into the super crowded “I wanna fight Jon Jones” ring. Earlier this week, Anthony Smith AND Corey Anderson also told us they want a crack at Jones.
But, Rockhold’s got the best resume of the 3 fighters … and a fight with him and Jones would be a big money maker … and it’s a match L.R. is totally confident he’ll win (he told us he’ll be champ in ’19).
