UFC 197’s co-main event will see reigning flyweight champ Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson defend his belt against Olympic wrestler Henry Cejudo.
Assuming he makes the 125-pound cutoff (which is a big assumption, as he’s missed weight before), Cejudo brings the obvious to the table – he won a gold medal in the 2008 Olympic Games in freestyle wrestling. But does he have what it takes to usurp Mighty Mouse from the throne?
That’s a tough one. Especially considering that the biggest “name” Cejudo has beaten in the Octagon is Jussier Formiga, and that was via split decision.
Ponder this, and while you do so, watch Cejudo in action below against Dustin Kimura.
