Watch: Cejudo/Dillashaw & Hernandez/Cowboy Staredowns Ahead Of UFC Brooklyn

Henry Cejudo went fully theatrical just prior to facing off with TJ Dillashaw after a very tense staredown between Alex Hernandez and Donald Cerrone.

This was an odd moment from the colourful UFC flyweight champion, to say the least.

Brandishing a fake snake just prior to his staredown with his UFC Brooklyn opponent TJ Dillashaw, Cejudo then smashed it on the ground before standing in front of the 135lb king.

Just prior to that, rising contender Alexander Hernandez put down the mic he had so viciously attacked Donald Cerrone with just before and both men turned in an incredibly tense faceoff.

Hernandez is 2-0 in the UFC with wins over Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Beneil Dariush but will face another level of competition entirely in the former welterweight contender Cerrone – who returns to the lightweight division for the first time since 2016.

Hernandez vs. Cowboy is the fight that will headline the prelims on Saturday while Cejudo and Dillashaw’s super-fight for the flyweight title will sit as the main-event headliner.
