In his past couple fights, Cejudo has adopted a much more brash and outlandish persona. He defeated Demetrious Johnson to earn his first UFC title after a close, five round fight. He then defended it against former bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw, winning via first round TKO. Cejudo then moved up to bantamweight, challenging Marlon Moraes for the vacant bantamweight title, winning via TKO once more.
Aldo lost his featherweight title to Max Holloway in 2017 via TKO. The Brazilian began 2019 with a TKO win over countryman Renato Moicano. He then went on to lose a decision to Alexander Volkanovski – Who would go on to become featherweight champion. Aldo then moved down to bantamweight, challenging the above mentioned Moraes. After a three round battle, Moraes was awarded a controversial split decision win. The controversial nature of the bout is most likely what prompted the UFC to give Aldo a title shot.
