Henry Cejudo Wiki Update Wiki

Henry Carlos Cejudo is an American retired mixed martial artist and freestyle wrestler. He was signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship and is the former UFC flyweight champion and UFC bantamweight champion. 


Henry Cejudo is hoping to make big waves in the MMA world.  The 2008 Olympic gold medalist is the youngest American wrestler to win a gold medal, and is hoping to earn similar results in MMA. Not to be mistaken for a one trick pony, Cejudo recently won a Copper Gloves tournament in Arizona, having four amateur boxing matches on his resume in addition to his stellar amateur wrestling career. 

Despite earning gold at 121lbs, would make his MMA debut in the bantamweight division. His first opponent was Mike Poe. Cejudo won by submission due to strikes in the first round. He would pick up 5 more wins before signing with the UFC. Cejudo hoped to compete at flyweight (125 lbs) in the UFC, but after an infamous botched weight-cut vs Scott Jorgensen at UFC 177 that resulted in the cancellation of the fight, UFC president Dana White banned him from the flyweight division.  

Cejudo would bounce back with a dominant decision win over Dustin Kimura at UFC on FOX 13 in the bantamweight division. After the fight, Cejudo expressed interest in giving 125 lbs another try.  The UFC was willing to oblige and matched him up with Chris Cariaso at UFC 185 at flyweight. He would look impressive en route to a unanimous decision victory.


After beating Demetrius "Mighty Mouse" Johnson for the flyweight championship Cejudo made his first title defense against the current bantamweight champion Tj Dillashaw on Saturday January 19, 2019. Cejudo came out strong and overwhelmed Dillashaw to win by TKO in 32 seconds successfully defending his flyweight belt and becoming undisputed flyweight champion. 


On may 9th, 2020 after defeating Dominic Cruz by Tko Henry "the messenger" Cejudo officially retired from MMA.
