A traditionalist, Cejudo had talked about how marriages should be for the long run. Consequently, when he was open about what’s going on in his personal life, fans expected things to last long. However, to their dismay, it didn’t, and instead, Cejudo is back to being a bachelor.

“Triple C” confirmed everything when he tweeted that the most eligible bachelor in town is back. Speaking on The Schmozone Podcast, Cejudo seemed candid when he talked about how he felt about the split.

“That’s life though. You know sometimes we picture things in our heads, sometimes that’s just life. It was just too much for me. I probably enjoy my freedom more than anything. I just got to the point where it’s just like every bad relationship,” he said.

People start talking bad about each other and disrespecting each other. It just wasn’t cool,” Cejudo said.

I’m a very peaceful guy. I’m a very happy person. Those who do know me will tell you. I felt like I was losing a part of me. I just didn’t like the way I was feeling so I had to exit out. Little things turn into big things and once you lose respect, everything goes out the window, to say the least,” he added.
