UFC 197: Johnson vs Cejudo Odds

Only one opponent remains in the flyweight division for Demetrious Johnson and that is Henry Cejudo. ‘Mighty Mouse’ is the only man to ever hold the 125 lbs strap in the UFC since the division's inception in 2012. During Johnson’s reign as flyweight champion he has beaten the likes of John Dodson (twice), Joseph Benavidez (twice) and Ali Bagautinov while establishing himself as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet.

Johnson has displayed phenomenal striking skills to pair with his incredibly efficient wrestling and grappling to dismantle all comers. Mighty Mouse has completely cleaned out the division aside from his next opponent.

Cejudo is a perfect 10-0 in his MMA career, which is thanks to his Olympic gold medal winning wrestling abilities and abnormal strength for a man his size. ‘The Messenger’ has won each of his past six fights by decision, including a split decision victory over Jussier Formiga in his last bout. Cejudo does have some good hand quickness, but there is no doubt what his bread and butter is.

Mighty Mouse opened at -400 to defend his title for the eighth consecutive time, a feat only ever done three times in UFC history, according to Bovada. Cejudo came back at +300 when the odds hit the board.
