UFC’s Henry Cejudo Blasts T.J. Dillashaw ‘I’m Gonna Behead That Snake’

EXCLUSIVE

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. 

T.J. Dillashaw Gunning for 3 UFC Belts … Champ Champ Champ?!

EXCLUSIVE

You’ve seen “champ champs” in the UFC — but never a “champ champ champ” … which is why T.J. Dillashaw wants to be the very first fighter to hold THREE belts at the same time!!!

The UFC’s reigning bantamweight champ is gearing up to fight Henry Cejudo on Jan. 19 at UFC Fight Night on ESPN+ for the flyweight title … and if he wins that bout, T.J. says he’s got eyes on Max Holloway

Of course, Holloway is the reigning featherweight champ — so, if T.J. can get through Henry and Max he would be the first triple title holder in the history of the UFC. 

Despite his big career goals, Dillashaw says he’s laser-focused on beating Henry first — and says he knows Cejudo is scared.

“He’s just praying that I don’t make weight,” T.J. told the guys at TMZ Sports … “He’s praying that I’m weak.”

Dillashaw says he believes he can be the greatest UFC fighter of all time — and can’t wait to prove it on the big stage. 

There’s more … we asked T.J. for his favorite celebrity moment — and he’s got a GREAT story involving Shaquille O’Neal
