Henry Cejudo is coming off of one of the biggest victories of his MMA career, likely saving his division in the process. On top of that, he may have secured a date with his self-confessed crush. Does it get any better?
Cejudo has cemented himself as one of the P4P best fighters on the roster after shell-shocking TJ “Ninja Turtle” Dillashaw, winning by KO in a mere 32 seconds. After beating one of the best MMA practitioners ever in Mighty Mouse, Cejudo came in as an underdog to the Bantamweight king who had successfully defended his belt and smoked him. Even more than that, he saved a division. There was a lot of talk of the UFC scrapping 125, and with rampant cutting of fighters and the trade of Demetrious Johnson, it seemed very plausible if TJ dethroned the champion. He did not, so the division continues to live on, at least for now. As the above tweet says, Flyweight are not dying. Whether they multiply I believe relies solely on the success of Cejudo and his ability to sell himself and the division to the general public. If the division gains enough popularity, there will be no reason to cut it out completely.
On non-MMA fronts, Cejudo is also doing well. After confessing to Ariel Helwani that he has a crush on Nikki Bella, WWE Superstar, an exchange between the two of them began online. She had said, shown in the video above, that she would like to potentially get a drink. Cejudo replied with an emphatic yes and that he could show her “some moves.” Get yourself some, Henry!
