Henry Cejudo and Wilson Reis have a few things in common. They’re both elite members of the flyweight division. They’re both expert grapplers – Cejudo with Olympic wrestling, Reis with jiu-jitsu. And they both have lost handily to champ Demetrious Johnson.
Round 1 opens with Cejudo throwing punches and immediately tagging the Brazilian, while Reis tries to find glory of his own with his strikes but is largely unsuccessful. Reis changes tactics a bit with a takedown attempt, but come on, that’s Cejudo’s specialty, and the Brazilian gets tossed around. Cejudo mixes in kicks, and when the horn sounds things are looking ugly for Reis.
Despite girding his loins and coming out with guns blazing in the second, Reis eats a right and melts to the canvas. Cejudo follows him, unloads, and that’s all, folks.
