UFC Fight Night 143 fight card, odds: T.J. Dillashaw favored to become dual-champ in Brooklyn

A new era is set to begin for UFC on Saturday. Inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, UFC Fight Night 143 will take place, marking the promotion’s first event broadcast on an ESPN platform. And to get the ESPN era kicked off for UFC, a significant champion vs. champion showdown is set to headline the historic card which will air on ESPN+ at 10 p.m. ET. 

The main event on Saturday sees reigning bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw step down a weight class to take on flyweight champion Henry Cejudo for the 125-pound title. This will mark the first defense of the flyweight championship for Cejudo since he shocked the world last year by ending the historic reign of Demetrious Johnson, while Dillashaw certainly solidified himself as the best bantamweight in the promotion with a second consecutive knockout victory over rival Cody Garbrandt. Both of those fights went down last August at UFC 227, so these two champs have virtually been on a collision course with one another for the past five months. It all comes to a head on Saturday night in Brooklyn.
