UFC 188 is quickly approaching, and though the pay-per-view broadcast is headlined by a heavyweight pairing between champ Cain Velasquez and interim champ Fabricio Werdum, the prelims on FX have as their star attraction a bout pitting Henry Cejudo against Chico Camus.
Henry Cejudo. The Olympic gold medalist wrestler who should, on paper, be the greatest challenge in the world to the flyweight champ, if only he could consistently make weight.
If you’ll recall, Cejudo was all set to make a splash at UFC 177 against Scott Jorgenson, but the dude flubbed his weight cut and the bout was scrapped, prompting Dana White say he had to move up to bantamweight or it’s “Adios, amigo.” The Olympian did eventually manage to make weight against Chris Cariaso at UFC 185, but the dark cloud still hangs over this fattie. Seriously, if he could just show some consistency when he steps on the scale, that title shot is his…
Anyway, here’s a video from the UFC hyping Cejudo.
