There is a clear path to victory for both Cejudo and Moraes in this fight. If the flyweight champion can utilize his Olympic wrestling because he did against Johnson then he’ll grind a decision triumph. To get Moraes, he needs to utilize his explosiveness to stuff that the takedowns and keep Cejudo in a range at which he could pick him apart with his jab.
