In an interview on ‘Eyes on the game’ hosted by Helen Yee, former flyweight and bantamweight Henry Cejudo endorsed the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump.
During the interaction, Cejudo mentioned that he had a lot of things going on since retiring from the sport.
“I was just granted to be the co-host with Mike Tyson, for hot boxin’ with Mike Tyson.” He followed up by mentioning that he will be with President Donald Trump this Sunday. “This coming Sunday I’m going to be with the President, our president, your president, President Donald Trump.”
This is probably one of the first times that Cejudo has openly voiced his political opinions and inclinations.
He joins a list of former and present UFC fighters that have extended their support to President Trump ahead of the elections on November 3. Tito Ortiz, Colby Covington, and Dana white have all supported Trump vehemently and continue to do so.
Henry Cejudo stepped away from the sport on his own terms. While he has been enjoying his time outside the octagon, Cejudo is still a martial artist and a man driven by competition.
And that brings up another interesting question: Will ‘Triple C’ be able to stay put and watch someone else with his belts?
Cejudo is only 33 and still has a good number of years left in the sport. A matchup against the likes of Cody Garbrandt or Deiveson Figueiredo could generate good PPV numbers and a handsome payday for the ‘King of Cringe.’
Cejudo retired right after he won the gold medal in wrestling and never went back. So maybe he is done for good. But then again, wrestling does not pay the same as Dana White does.
