UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw looks like a different man entirely as he cuts down to 125 pounds for his Saturday night flyweight title fight with Henry Cejudo, which will air on ESPN+.

In Cejudo’s eyes, this slimmed-down version of Dillashaw does not look good.

“Personally, I think he looks like Pee-wee Herman if you ask me,” Cejudo said of Dillashaw on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour (transcript via MMA Fighting). “In the physique way, I really do feel like he looks like Pee-wee Herman. … I thought he’d have a little more bulk to him, but I guess not. He’s not looking so well. It looks like he needs a cup of water. He looks like a cross country runner.”

Needless to say, Henry Cejudo believes that TJ Dillashaw has bitten off more than he can chew with this cut down to 125 pounds. The flyweight champion believes we’ll see the effects of the bantamweight champ’s cut on Saturday night.

“If you’ve never cut weight [to 125 pounds] — I know what it feels like to make that weight, any true flyweight knows exactly what it feels like to cut an extra 10 pounds,” he said. “He’s going to feel it Saturday night, and I’m looking to expose him.

“I’m showing you guys what a true flyweight looks like,” Cejudo added. “Not depleted, nice and strong, that’s getting ready to take over the world. A lot of that I would give credit to my neuroscience team, NeuroForce1. Everything that I do is all based on technology and science, and I have never felt so good. At the age of 31, I feel like I’m in my prime, baby. I’ve never felt so strong.”
