The Bantamweight title fight could be a good battle with Cejudo coming in as the champion and being challenged by Cruz. Now, what is really cool about this battle will be the fact that between a combined 41 bouts there is only 4 losses between the two fighters with each having 2 recorded.

Cejudo is coming into the fight standing at 5’4” and only 135 pounds. He does have  64” reach ad that will help him out quite a bit. He does have an orthodox stance style and uses a wrestling style type of fighting style. The last 5 bouts for Cejudo ended up getting a victory in all 5 of those bouts. Almost all of those bouts went to at least 3 rounds and 3 of those were settled by a KO/TKO with one submission and a decision mixed in. All of those wins contributed to Cejudo’s 15-2-0 record.

Cruz is coming in as the bigger fighter in height and reach. Cruz has a 4 inch height advantage at 5’8” and his weight is sitting at 135 pounds. Now, Cruz does have a 68 inch reach, but it will be hard for the Dominator to take advantage of that type of length reach with the way that Cejudo is able to stay a smaller target. Cruz does use the same wrestling style of fighting as well. The past 5 bouts for Cruz seen him go 4-1, but his last fight was in 2016 and it was a loss in a decision. Cruz is sitting on a 22-2 record, though, with a 7-0 record for the KO/TKO.

 

Free Pick:
Henry Cejudo -250

Cruz has not fought in quite some time and it will show in this bout here. Look for that to make a difference in the game, but also for the smaller target that Cejudo presents here to make it hard for Cruz to land any blows. Fight Prediction Winner, Henry Cejudo.
