Morning Report: Henry Cejudo wants Justin Gaethje in UFC 288, suggests title eliminator vs. Beneil Dariush.

To help UFC 288, Henry Cejudo has the answer.

The news that the co-main event between top lightweight contenders Charles Oliveira...

...and Beneil Dariush was cancelled this past weekend hurt the UFC's upcoming pay-per-view event on May 6.

Due to Oliveira's injury, the fight will now take place at UFC 289 on June 10 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, as reported by Dariush.

The promotion wants to replace it with another big fight and is working on doing so, according to UFC President Dana White.

The former dual-division champion Cejudo believes he understands the ideal play because he is one half of the card's main event.

“Why not Justin Gaethje?” YouTuber Cejudo stated. "Justin Gaethje will take over." He vs. Dariush for the title.
