UPDATE: Sources say that Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo 2 has not been finalized.


Looks like we may see a rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo.

Cejudo’s manager Ali Abdelaziz spilled the beans on his Twitter account. He claims the title rematch is set for the summer. You can peep the tweet below:

Johnson and Cejudo met back in April 2016. “Mighty Mouse” steamrolled his opponent, earning a TKO win in under three minutes. Since that time, Cejudo has made significant improvements to his standup game.

In his last bout, Johnson broke the record for most successful consecutive UFC title defenses. He retained his flyweight title in style, doing a suplex into an armbar to finish Ray Borg. It’s the 12th submission victory in Johnson’s career.

Meanwhile, Cejudo has gone 2-1 in his last three bouts. His split decision loss to Joseph Benavidez was controversial. Despite having a point deducted, many felt he should’ve won the bout.

Alright fight fans, MMA News always wants to hear from the readers. What do you think of a rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo? Would you have rather seen T.J. Dillashaw get a shot at dethroning Johnson or is Cejudo ready for another opportunity? You can hit up the comments section below to let your voice be heard.


  1. I dig it, Henry has improved a lot. I don’t think it’ll be enough, but it will certainly be more competitive this time

  2. Only person that would give DJ a run for his money is TJ,Henry would have to get lucky to get even close.

  3. Formiga has lost to every big name opponent he’s ever faced. He should fight Sergio Pettis next and if he wins, then against Benavidez to see if he’s ready for a title shot.

  4. I think by the 1st round or 2nd round the latest, I will know if Henry stands a chance this time. He lost by TKO in the 1st round last time.

  5. Something about Ali Abdelaziz rubs me the wrong way. Was just listening to him on the MMA Junkie podcast and got douche chills listening to him talk about Conor is afraid of Khabib and how fans wanna see Henry Cejudo against D.J. (when CLEARLY no one is clamoring for that and everyone IS clearly clamoring for the Dillashaw fight).

  6. You don’t think he has grown any since their first fight? I too would pick D.J. but I wouldn’t say Cejudo doesn’t stand a chance. I was actually surprised D.J. finished him the way he did and something tells me he might not be able to do so as easily if they fought again. Reminds me of Ronda Rousey vs. Sara McMann finish and my thoughts on what would happen if they fought again (which are the same thoughts I had before Rousey got starched by Holm and Nunes, for the record!)

  7. Without a doubt he has,but so has DJ.I think what kind of gameplan could Henry deploy.Does he put DJ on the backfoot and rush at him,which DJ is capable of defending and picking his strikes?I don’t think he can submit him,hes fast so slight chance at a KO.But only way I can see it going down in Henry’s favour.Either way I hope its a better fight.Sara Mcmann is a better fighter then what she showed as others before and after her that fought Rhonda.Looking back i think a lot of her opponents were beaten mentally before the fight even began.
