Henry Cejudo seemed very excited to be a part of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s fighting promotion and gave fans a glimpse of what it is going to be like. He said, “These people are just professionals man. They know that they’re going to attach Khabib to their name, that they got to do things right. So everything from the commentating, to the fights, to the lighting, to the music, to the spectators.”

He also said,” It’s not gonna be open just like to the public like it’s gonna be a pretty cool invite-only league… I believe it’s going to revolutionize a lot. It reminds me a lot of like, the apex, but it’s just a little bit better because these people took over a whole TV studio and it’s and it’s an arena. It’s super, super cool I can’t wait.”
