Darren Till: I would’ve said Dillashaw all day but it looks like he’s had a very tough cut

I'm a big fan of Dillashaw as a fighter but I couldn't back him after that weight cut....


It’s a great fight this. Cejudo’s coming into it after taking down Might Mouse who was unbeaten in something ridiculous like 13 fights so his confidence will be sky high.

I would’ve always said Dillashaw, 100%. He has a height and reach advantage, he’s got great hand speed, great boxing, great footwork so on paper I’d be backing him all day. I like him as a fighter.

There is a disclaimer coming though looking at TJ – and that’s the weight cut. If he has a bad one and finds it tough it changes things completely. And from what I’ve seen I think the weight cut could be a big issue for him now.

He doesn’t look too good right now from the videos and pictures I’ve seen so I think he’s had a tough cut. And that will impact his cardio, power and speed.

Coming in strong, fit and healthy to this fight, I think Dillashaw gets the job done no problem. But with that tough weight cut and that’s what it looks like to me, I think he’ll lose the fight so I’d backing Cejudo to win the fight.

Darren Till’s bet: Henry Cejudo to beat TJ Dillashaw @ 7/4
