“Man, I’m so happy to finally turn 24, and yeah, I finally have my second girlfriend ever believe it or not. Her name is Ana Karolina, Anna Carolina, if you’re watching this, a kiss from the King of Cringe.

“I met her through a friend and she was actually my crush for four years on social media. And I always saw the way she was taking care of her grandmother, I was like I want to meet this girl, she’s pretty, everything about her I like. And I was actually probably one of the only girls I stalked on social media, so that being said, I think I got cringed. We had a mutual friend in common and then we finally met and Triple C took over.”

Henry Cejudo, who isn’t active from MMA, continues to remain relevant in the MMA landscape by not stopping his self-promotional antics. What’s more, the consensus is that Cejudo will make his return if a hefty paycheck is cut his way.
