"I want to start getting paid", Cejudo said. The bantamweight title was on the line, following T.J. Dillashaw being suspended for EPO and stripped of the belt.

Speaking to Joe Rogan post-fight, Cejudo called for title defenses opposite Urijah Faber, Dominick Cruz and Cody Garbrandt - all bantamweights. Moraes arguably won the first half of the fight, frustrating, hurting and even dropping Cejudo with kicks to his lead calf as well as firing off fast punches in volume whenever Cejudo led with his own kicks. Posturing up one last time, Cejudo unloaded with more elbows and punches to the head of the downed Moraes, prompting the referee to step in and stop the contest with nine seconds left in the round. Though it will be a close matchup between these two technical fighters, there is a good chance that Moraes will take down Cejudo in this battle. He busted up Moraes' nose with punches, crushed him with a knee to the body, took him down and took top position.

Afterward, Cejudo said he had a "hit list".
