Unsurprisingly, it is the champion that has opened up as the betting favourite, but not by much.
At 1/2, Cejudo odds aren't exactly short for a defending fighter, particularly coming on the back of a four-fight win streak, with his last two performances proving his worth as the double champ.
'The Messenger' lived up to his nickname back in January 2019, stopping TJ Dillashaw in just thirty seconds, essentially saving the flyweight division. Cejudo stated that he was fighting for his fellow flyweights, following rumours that Dana White wanted to scrap the entire weight class.
It was certainly message received by the UFC President, with the American coming flying out of the blocks and becoming the first man to stop Dillashaw since 2011; he is a very powerful fighter for his size, and he showcased his aggressive mindset on that night.
The same can be applied to his last victory against Moraes, where he overcame adversity to win the fight by stoppage again. His ground and pound on the Brazilian was simply brutal, with the fight being stopped in the third after Moraes scored quite handsomely on many fans' cards.
Given his form on paper and champion status, there can be no denying Cejudo's tag as the fight favourite.
