In an interview with MMA Junkie, Henry Cejudo’s coach Eric Albarracin said that Cejudo is not feeling the pressure of the future of the flyweight division as he heads into a fight with TJ Dillashaw at UFC on ESPN+ 1. Here are highlights:

On if Cejudo is feeling any pressure: “Henry doesn’t feel pressure. Henry creates pressure. And pressure versus time equals diamonds.”

On Dana White being non-committal about the flyweight division: “I wish Henry would have stood up and took his hand and grabbed it. Made him make the pact. I don’t think it matters. Henry’s going to go in there with one goal on his mind, and that’s to run through T.J. Dillashaw.”

On Cejudo’s performance in training camp: “He’s more dialed in. The last fight, he had a chip on his shoulder, and he got that revenge. But now, he’s here with passion and purpose, because he’s here to save the flyweight division. So he’s focused.”
