The UFC will make its long awaited debut on ESPN+ next month, when bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw drops down to 125-pounds to take on flyweight champ Henry Cejudo at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

With just under a month to go, Ultimate Fighting Championship released the official ESPN+1 poster on Friday, with Dillashaw vs. Cejudo being touted as a ‘champ vs. champ’ superfight.

Check it out below.

Cejudo (13-2) immediately called for a champ vs. champ bout against Dillashaw after his big win over former pound-for-pound No. 1 Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227, where ‘The Messenger’ dethroned ‘Mighty Mouse’ in the co-main event at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

On the same card, Dillashaw went on to retain his bantamweight title against Cody Garbrandt, KO’ing his former teammate in the first round of the main event. With the win, Dillashaw surged into the UFC’s top five pound-for-pound rankings, and the 32-year-old will look to crack the top three with another impressive showing against Cejudo.

UFC on ESPN +1, also known as UFC Fight Night 143, takes place next month, January 19 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
